Here, see excerpts from the interview:
Tell me something about your experience on the film.
It was so beautiful that everybody was fighting to make the film better. Nobody was fighting about meatier role or getting spotlight or any such thing. We were fighting with the DOP to keep a better angle for the scene. I think it was Vasan sir’s magic that made us so involved.
What do you think about Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota’s comparisons with Kickass and The World Is Not Enough.
That was just a situation. Here it talks about the disease. I think the closest that Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota comes is to Kung Fu Panda’s Po.
People address you as Bhagyashree’s son…
Yes, I am extremely proud of that. But then again, I feel that I haven’t achieved anything yet. Maine Pyar Kiya is still the biggest debut in the history of Bollywood.
You mentioned that films for you was taking your mother away. Does she feel the same way?
No, she’s extremely proud. Whatever I am gaining in life after signing this film, it’s nothing less than a dream. More so, they are coming true with the process of this film. I’ll give you a recent example. For me, childhood was about watching Discovery and History Channel. The other day National Geographic had a three page poster of Mard Ko Dard Nahi Hota. It had my face! Mom had tears in her eyes. She was telling me that she let me grow with this magazine and now I feature on it with a full-page article. That’s a dream which I never thought could take place but it happened. I’m a comic book fan and Surya is the first character to come in a film and then get into a comic book which is Tinkle. That is bigger than a dream. Mom always has tears in her eyes.
You would like to continue your career in Bollywood, right?
Yes but language is not a barrier for me. If I get a South Indian film or a Chinese film, I’m open to anything that would let me express truth.
