Mersel Villain SJ Surya Interview

don’t think I’ll direct a film anytime soon. At the moment, I’m having too much fun playing lead roles to even think about going behind the camera,” SJ Suryah says, in a matter-of-fact tone.

Ever since he surprised the audiences with his performance in Karthik Subbaraj’s Iraivi, he has stuck to acting in films and thanks to AR Murugadoss’s bilingual film Spyder, SJ Suryah has made it evident that he’s here to stay as an actor.

While his role as Bhairavudu in Spyder was dark and psychotic to say the least, the actor is confident that his latest avatar as a stylish villain in Mersal will come as a big surprise.

The film is going to release in Telugu asAdhirindhi and is all set to hit the screens for Deepavali.

“Although some of Vijay’s films were dubbed in Telugu in the past, I can guarantee thatAdhirindhi will make a big splash in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. It’ll be a major career boost for Vijay in Telugu. The film has got a good concept and a nice message, and the Telugu audiences will love the flashback sequence in the film,” he avers.

Mersal‘s villain

Incidentally, there’s very little that we know about what SJ Suryah has done in the film, and the actor himself remains tight-lipped about his role.

“Let it be a surprise for the audience. All I can say is that I’ve two different shades, and my role in the flashback episode is something to watch out for. I had a lot of fun sporting a stylish look as a villain and full credit to Atlee for writing an interesting role for me,” SJ Suryah says.

“Atlee himself is a good actor. During Spyder’s shoot, Murugadoss would allows us to play the role, and then, he would improvise the scenes or dialogues on the spot keeping our body language in mind. However, Atlee has a different approach. He performs the scene during the narration itself and he knows that’s what he’s looking for in the final cut. I picked up a lot of body language for the character from him. It helped me a lot to pull off the role,” he adds.

SJ Suryah, the actor

The more he talks about his love for acting, it becomes obvious that everything he did over the years was to inch closer to his dream. And after all these years, he finally seems to reaping huge benefits.

While Murugadoss and Atlee pitched him in negative characters, he is doing scores of other films either as a lead actor or as the second lead. His next film is being helmed by Ashwin Saravanan, who made quite an impression with his debut film Maaya which had Nayanthara in a lead role.

Admittedly, it was in the mid-90s that Suryah had made up his mind to become a lead actor; however, it took him almost a decade to fulfill his dream.

“If you want to make it big as an actor, you need a director and a producer to back you. However, back then, no one was willing to cast me as a lead actor. So, I had to become a director, make money and become a producer, before I fulfilled my dream (to become a lead actor) in 2004 with New. It was all part of the plan,” he laughs.
