Surya - Tamil Film Actor
Saravanan Sivakumar a.k.a Surya belongs to the younger crop of Tamil film stars.
Son of yesteryear B-grade Tamil film actor Sivakumar, Surya has had a few big hits including Kaakha Kaakha (the story of a police officer), Ghajini and Nerrukku Ner but currently faces intense competition from the likes of Vijay, Vishal and Simbhu.
Surya essayed a stellar performance as the police officer Anbuselvam in Kaakha Kaakha directed by Gautam Menon. A fast paced, slick movie, Kaakha Kaakha is that rare amalgam of love, action, tragedy, scintillating music and superb photography. Surya was paired opposite Jyothika in Kaakha Kaakha.
Another noteworthy Surya movie is Ghajini (2005) where he's featured as the young man suffering from severe head trauma sustained during a murderous assault on his girlfriend. Ghajini is based on the English film Memento starring Guy Pearce.
But most of Surya's other films are eminently forgettable.
His latest movie Ayan, a love story featuring Tamanna, Prabhu is an ugly movie beyond redemption and offers zero entertainment value. Zilch.
His earlier movies Vaaranam Aayiram featuring Sameera Reddy, Divya Spandana and Jillunu Oru Kadhal, a love story featuring Jyothika and Bhumika Chawla, failed to click with the audience and was a damp squib at the box office.
Recently, Surya dubbed for Abhishek Bachchan in the Tamil version of the Abhishek Bachchan-Aishwarya Rai Hindi film Guru.
Born on July 23, 1975, Surya started his career in Tamil movies in 1997 with Nerrukku Ner. Prior to his entry into movies, Surya worked at a garment factory in Ambattur. He attended Loyola College in Chennai and holds a degree in commerce.
Surya married Tamil film heroine Jyothika on September 11, 2006. He has a younger brother Karthik, who's now getting his toes wet in Tamil movies, and a younger sister Brindha.
