press conf. today at Hotel Green Park, Chennai.
The worldwide gross box-office collections of Suriya’s films in the last five years, place the actor on a different level. He does every kind of cinema and is extremely versatile. He doesn’t want to be slotted in any image trap and if anyone had doubts about his pulling power at the box-office, Ayan silenced them all. Now the actor is tensed as a lot is riding on Aadhavan, his Diwali release has been sold at all areas for a rumoured Rs 40 crore, the highest in his career. In a brief chat with the media the Badshah of Box-office speaks.
How was it working with KS Ravikumar, the director with the midas touch?

But after a few days of shooting, I started thoroughly enjoying and I learned so much from him. He is cool as cucumber. In fact, both of us are back with Aadhavan after giving super hits like Dasavatharam and Ayan.
Tell us about your producer Udayanidhi Stalin?
Uday is more like a friend and I have not seen a producer who is so involved with his film. His passion and commitment has to be seen to be believed. He was there throughout the shoot, even in the very cold Iceland and was a big support and seeing that we had no problem at any given point of time.
So what’s Aadhavan all about? (Read More…)
