Kamal Haasan is undoubtedly one of the finest actors of contemporary Indian cinema and he has inspired several actors from the younger generation. Among the younger lot, Suriya is one of the few actors who is hailed for his acting skills and the actor himself credits Kamal Haasan as a source of inspiration.
The duo addressed a huge crowd at the audio launch of a Tamil film recently in Chennai and their admiration for each other caught everyone’s attention. Apparently, when the anchor stated that Suriya puts in 110% of his efforts in to his films, Suriya objected saying, “I think the description is more suited for Kamal Haasan. He has always been a big source of inspiration for me.”
Neither of them have acted with each other in the past, but looking at their mutual admiration for each other, it would be very interesting if some director can convince a multi-starrer with both these actors. For now, this thought just remains as a dream.
