The audio and trailer launch of Karthi's Viruman took place last night at Madurai and it was one of the most successful K-town events in the recent past. The event witnessed the presence of thousands of fans who thronged the auditorium to witness their favourite stars. The entire cast and crew of Viruman were present at the grand and glitzy event. Suriya, being the producer of Viruman, was also present at the occasion and his presence was the major highlight of the event. Suriya received a humongous reception from the gathering and considering the fact that this is his first public appearance after the blockbuster success of his character as Rolex in Vikram and National Award win (for Soorarai Pottru), the fans were delighted in welcoming their favourite star.

Suriya's speech was also something that gained wide traction on social media. Suriya is someone who is known for speaking his heart out and his speech at the Viruman audio launch was one such example. Suriya's humble and generous character was seen when he heaped praise on his brother Karthi. Suriya called Karthi a better actor than him and it instantly made the gathering go, 'Awwww'. The brotherhood rapport has won the hearts of the people already and the clipping of Suriya's speech has turned viral.

Talking about Karthi, Suriya said, "When it comes to thinking about cinema and dedicating time to cinema, Karthi does it more than me. I can tell this at any stage. Compared to me, he is more inclined towards cinema and he is more concerned for the welfare of cinema and the industry. I don't want to keep praising my own brother, but still.. I can confidently say that Karthi is a better actor than me and I can openly tell this at any stage". Viruman is slated for a grand theatrical release on August 12 and the film is expected to take a very good opening at the box office.

This is who he is!
