Film Fraternity Condemns After Suriya Gets Trolled On TV
By Vivek Raj [ January 19, 2018 ]
Actor Suriya has been riding the high wave after his recent film Thaanaa Serndha Koottam has been performing exceptionally well at the box office across Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
TSK’s Telugu version, Gang, which released in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana has also received an unanimous positive response from fans and critics alike.
Suriya will next be joining hands with ace filmmaker Selvaraghavan for Suriya 36 to be produced under the Dream Warrior Pictures banner, which would also feature Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh as the female leads.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed few days back that Suriya would team up with director KV Anand, whom he had previously collaborated with on Ayan and Maattrraan.
There have been reports stating iconic Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is being sought after to star in the KV Anand-Suriya film, which is now being called Suriya 37.
In the midst of this, the topic came under debate on a popular TV channel, which airs a program that discusses film industry gossip. The VJs in the program are seen taking potshots at Suriya and his height, which have now come out as outright insults. These comments have not only invited the wrath of fans of all actors, but displeasure from the elite in the Tamil film industry.
Actor Vishal had taken to his Twitter page to state such comments are not funny at all.
Thaanaa Serndha Koottam director Vignesh ShivN too weighed in his opinion saying the film industry has become a soft target for such statements.
Producer Gnanavelraja was outraged with the incident and he didn’t hold back in expressing himself saying they needed to take a look at themselves in the mirror.
The statements made by the TV anchors come at a time when Suriya has spoken an inspirational dialogue in Thaanaa Serndha Koottam. In the particular scene, he says, "The height of an individual isn’t as important as the heights he goes on to reach in life,".
Neither the TV anchors nor Suriya have responded to the controversy.
