Who wouldn't love working with the Superstar: Soori

It was a crazy crowd that packed this restaurant in Avaniyapuram in Madurai to greet the actor Sivakarthikeyan and comedian Soori. Undeterred, the duo was more than happy to be back in their city, and Soori, very soon, began telling us mature stories about Madurai. The mood became nostalgic as Soori recounted how he always had a weak spot for Madurai cuisine, his special bond with Sivakarthikeyan, and his upcoming projects, including the one with Superstar Rajinikanth .

“When we think about Madurai, the first thing that comes to our mind is food - Maduraiites are amazing cooks, and have invented many dishes over the years, and they also love to eat well. So, if what we cook is liked by the people of Madurai, we can satisfy anyone in the world, ”Soori told us. “Whenever I come to Madurai, be it for a shoot, or to visit my family, the first thing I have is meen kuzhambu (fish curry), and then I head straight to devour is mutton chukka,” Soori laughed, and added, “And whenever Siva comes here, he never misses a chance to have the meen kuzhambu made at my house. I can say that I have never seen so much variety in non-veg cuisine in any other city that I have visited. ”

Soori continued, “The pazhaya soru (fermented rice) and oorugai (pickle) prepared by amma is what I love the most.” We slowly veered him off the topic of food and got him talking about Sivakarthikeyan, who had accompanied Soori to Madurai. “I have never heard a‘ no ’from my brother Sivakarthikeyan. Whenever I call him to go somewhere, ‘Where to?’ Will be the next words uttered by him, ”exclaimed Soori, explaining his special bond with Siva.

The duo, Soori let out, has signed another movie, and “the announcement will be made soon,” said the comedian. And what about the movie with Vetri Maaran? “When Vetri Maaran called me, even before I have narrated one line of the script, I said‘ yes ’. I never even asked him about the story then. I didn’t know then that the story was inspired by one of the poems in the late Na Muthukumar’s book, Pattampoochi Virpavan. And before you ask, no, I haven’t read the book or the poem yet because when you act under the direction of someone like Vetri Maaran, you just go to the spot and do what he says, ”said Soori.

Soori continues, A Vetri Maaran film is a lifetime opportunity for me, and this film will transform me from a comedian to a full-fledged actor.

What are the other movies in his kitty? “Apart from the upcoming movies Kombu Vatcha Singamada with Sasikumar and Sanga Tamizhan with Vijay Sethupathi, I have signed one more movie with Sasikumar recently. One other movie I am looking forward to is Sarbath, with Kathir, which has come out beautifully. I am dying to watch it on the big screen and also get the audience’s reactions, ”Soori revealed.

And now, for the big question: what about the buzz that he is a part of Rajinikanth next, referred to as # Thalaivar168, which will be directed by Siruthai Siva? Soori’s reaction to this was classic. He smiled, then tried to hide his smile, and said, “This announcement must come from the team, not from me. But let me ask you, who wouldn't love to share screen space with the Superstar of Tamil cinema? ”
