Yester year hero of many movies, Suman is
the prestigious villain of Rajinikanth's upcoming
movie Sivaji. The actor who had acted in more
than 300 films was seen very excited in his
recent interview to NDTV. Why wouldn't he
be, after lots of debates and deliberations
and after looking at various people right
from Sathyaraj to Prakash Raj to Raj Kiran,
Shankar had zeroed in on Suman.
"He wanted someone with a screen image, perhaps that
of a hero. He wanted someone with a soft face, who does
not look villainish. A classy face. The main thing was
the performance, because this person has to perform opposite
Rajinikanth," said Suman.
"I was very nervous in the beginning considering
the huge fan base of Rajinikanth and the very fact that
they do not like their demi-god being abused or bashed
up on screen. But, it was Rajinikanth who encouraged me.
He told me not to feel embarrassed and gave me a lot of
support. There are scenes where his fans are going to
feel bad," added the actor.
Oops Suman, that's one hell of a statement to make!
