Other awards and recognition


  1. Love you Surya

  2. For common middleclass people who generally are not much interested in watching films, knew actor mr. surya as son of actor mr.sivakumar,Rather than any of the above films untill he appeared in neengalum vellalaam oru kodi.
    Many became a realtime fan of him for his simplicity, humanitarian attitude, mingling casually etc., which was his original face. we all in our family liked him and he was a daily dinner companion at our home. my father (72) who sits in fron of tvonly for news/sports channels, slowly got attracted towards, my mother and wife who thinks poeple who watch tv other than serials are wasting thier time, also fell favourite for this show. my daughters tejaa (12) and harishri (10) generally likes commercial hit films only where hero allways wins just like that. but i could see thier uncontrolled tear drops which they allways try to hide, during every situation emotionally handled by mr. surya during oru kodi. He is now an icon to many youth not only as a cine hero. but also as a good human being. we wish all the very best to him, his career and family. D.sundararajan.
