Speaking at the audio launch of Kaappaan, Superstar Rajinikanth said, “Coming to Suriya, I have to talk about his father Sivakumar garu. He is someone who always takes care that nobody gets any bad name. Suriya and Karthi have been brought up like this by him. Karthi acted so well in his very first movie. When I watched his first movie (Nerukku Ner), I had my doubts about Suriya’s abilities. But, slowly, he molded himself and has reached this high stage. ‘Pithamagan‘, ‘Singham‘, ‘Singham-2‘, ‘Ayan‘, ‘Ghajini‘ are some of his great films.”
Rajinikanth further added: “Only Suriya could have played those roles that well. His recent views on the new education policy of the Centre have sparked a row. His critics said that he is not qualified to comment on the policy. I have witnessed his contributions through the Agaram Foundation. That’s why he reacted to the new policy that way. I am backing his comments. Suriya should continue to do good films like ‘Kaappaan‘. He should continue to win the hearts of the public. I think people will need him. I congratulate the entire unit of the film.”
Kaappaan, directed by KV Anand and bankrolled by Lyca, is set for August 30th release.
