'My dad is my inspiration', SooriAug 11, 2017 JB
Comedian Soori who is busy promoting his film Poduvaaga Emmansu Thangam met the press yesterday and interacted with them, an excerpt is as follows:
“I came to Chennai in 1996 to join the film industry. I assisted art directors since I was good at painting. When there was no work in cinema, I would work at one of the textile showrooms in T.Nagar. I always keep people around me happy with my witty one-liners. Everyone used to praise me for my comic sense, which I inherited from my dad who passed away recently. He has always remained my inspiration. I did a small role in Lingusamy’s Ji alongside Ajith but it was Kaadhal that got me the recognition. Through Suseenthiran’s Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu I got the moniker ‘Parotta’ Soori”.
To a poser on when he would become a hero, he said, “I don’t think about it, and I am happy as a comedian and want to improve myself and work as one.” Click the Movie button below for more info:
