Suriya on Sunday spoke about the possibility of doing a film.
The actor revealed that he almost said no to the role.
Suriya said he accepted the offer for just Kamal Haasan.
Suriya discussed the prospect of making a movie based on his wildly successful Vikram character Rolex on Sunday. One of the movie’s highlights and a favorite among viewers was Suriya’s cameo as the crime lord Rolex in Vikram. The actor, however, admitted that he almost declined the role when it was offered to him since he wasn’t very interested in playing it.
Sunday night, Suriya won the best actor award at the Filmfare Awards 2022 South for his role in Soorarai Pottru. As the actor walked up to the stage to accept the award, people in the crowd started chanting “Rolex!” When the event’s host, actor Ramesh Aravind, asked Suriya about Rolex’s return, Suriya said, “I think time will tell.” He also said, “I will do it if it comes.”
“Whatever I’m today, no matter what I’m doing in life, Kamal sir would’ve always been my inspiration. When he called and said there’s an opportunity, I didn’t want to let go of it. I want to share this with everyone. Whenever you’re scared, that’s when you want to jump. It was a last minute decision. I was going to call and tell Lokesh, I won’t do it. But I did it for one man,” Suriya said.
