Waited 19 years for a project like NGK: Suriya


The much awaited Suriya-starrer NGK is finally set to release this Friday after being in production for more than two years. In a recent interaction, actor Suriya revealed that he waited to work with Selvaraghavan since early 2000s.

“Selvaraghavan had carving a niche for himself with films like Kaadhal Kondein (2003) and Pudhupettai (2006) and I waited for nearly 19 years to come out with a project with him,” Suriya said.

Suriya was at Kochi on Wednesday for the promotion of NGK along with Selvaraghavan, his co-star Sai Pallavi and editor KL Praveen.

Suriya also opened about sharing screen space with Mohanlal in his upcoming movie Kapaan. “The first shot for the movie needed me to walk towards him and I was really tensed. His aura is too big to describe,” he said.

NGK revolves around the life of Nandha Gopalan Kumaran, a commoner who decides to take a political plunge. When asked if he would join politics, Suriya replied, “Politics is like a fire within. It implies all about having strong views and voicing out your opinions. And I do voice out my opinion, irrespective of the platforms I have.”

The film is being produced by SR Prakashbabu and SR Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures in association with Reliance Entertainment.
