Actor Sivakumar and his son Suriya

Chennai: Actor Sivakumar isn’t often vocal about his sons Suriya and Karthi, especially on stage. In an earlier interview with us a surprised Suriya even told us about how he was taken aback when his dad praised him on stage of 24.

He took the opportunity again at the press meet of Oh My Dog, produced by Jyotika-Suriya’s 2D Entertainment and said that Suriya’s success looks like a miracle to him.

“Karthi was quite studious and Suriya was a kid who would jump from bench to bench to avoid questions. One of his schools had asked to admit him in another school because their pass percentage would come down if Suriya gave his board exams,” he said.

The veteran actor also narrated the incident when put Suriya in St Bedes Academy. “We had to move Karthi as well with Suriya. I had to wait in a long line in the hot sun and submit his application form. We were told that Suriya could either make it or there could be a possibility of not taking him. We returned home and Suriya broke down terribly seeing me wait in the queue. I had to calm him down. Then came Loyola where he had seven arrears on an average and ended up completing it,” added Sivakumar.

As we all know Suriya began his career in the garment industry. “He traveled to Ambattur on a bike and to the harbour to ensure that the goods were safe. Once Vasanth met Suriya and asked if he would be interested in acting.

Suriya was raw and had no idea about cinema. Vasanth took him to Mani Ratnam and he cleared the audition. The day Nerukku Ner released, Suriya wanted to know the audience’s reaction. One guy came running to him and said, ‘Super ah sodhapiteenga’ (You did a bad job). Then Suriya watched the movie and he couldn’t believe that it was him in a few scenes and said how Vasanth was instrumental in making him look like a decent performer.

This boy has come a long way from there and then films like Nandha and Pithamagan happened. Today, he has delivered a film like Jai Bhim and has taken over the world,” he concluded.
