Though Saravanan had a sound knowledge about film due to his father’s presence, he had no plans to step into film industry. As his close friends say, ‘We were completely astonished to hear that Saravanan is going to make his debut in Tamil film industry’. First, he joined a garments factory as a merchandizing manager. For everyone’s surprise, his first month salary was Rs. 1000/- and he gifted his mom with a saree.

Directors Mani Rathnam and Vasanth had just met him at an occasion and called forth a photo shoot, which he took up casually. Well, a particular snapshot was about him putting his around Simran that he felt shy…. Then as he made his debut with ‘Nerukku Ner’, he happened to be the uprising star.

Filmography

His debut Film Nerrukku Ner was released in 1997. Directed by Vasanth, he teamed up with his college mate Actor Vijay. Actress Simran paired up with him. The very next year beginning had his film ‘Kadhale Nimmadhi’ where he paired up with Actor Murali. The film was released in January 1998. During the same year, his film ‘Sandhipoma’ was released in June.  The very next year in 1999, ‘Periyanna’ had him featured alongside with Actor Vijayakanth. Again, Surya was casted by Director Vasanth in his ‘Poovellam Kettupar’ and it was the same film where Jyothika was introduced. Indeed, Director Vasanth was the matchmaker for both of them miraculously. Again, Surya-Jyothika paired up for ‘Uyirile Kalandhadhu’ that hit the screens where his father Sivakumar donned the same role.

Surya and his parentsAgain, on Jan 14, 2001 both Surya and Vijay paired up for ‘Friends’ directed by Siddique. The film happened to the most stunning comedy entertainer with emotional factors. The same year Surya witnessed the greatest turning point in his career. Yeah! It was all about Bala offering him to perform the lead role of a different shade in his ‘Nandha’. The film won him the biggest laurels across the globe as hit the screens on November 14, 2001. It was a no turning back situation for the actor… His next film ‘Unnai Ninaithu’ again featured Surya together with Laila (she was the heroine in Bala’s ‘Nandha’). The film directed by Vikraman had Sneha too in the female lead. It was a poignant touch of romance and won awards for a good entertainer film. A couple of months later, his another film ‘Sree’ was released where he played an action packed mass hero role and indeed it turned to be a flop movie. During the yearend, his film ‘Mounam Pesiyadhe’ was released on Dec 14, 2002. Director Ameer made his debut directorial with this film.  The film introduced Trisha to the film industry and Laila performed a cameo role.

And here comes the most top-notching films from Surya where every piece turned to be great grosser at box office.

‘Kaakha Kaakha’ directed by Gowtham Menon had again made Surya, Jyothika to pair and this was the moment when both of them became so closer. The film was released on August 1st, 2009 and within couple of months for Diwali another magnum opus ‘Pithamaghan’ was released for Diwali. Directed by Bala, the film had Surya and Vikram and won several awards…

On May 6, 2004, ‘Perazhagan’ had Surya and Jyothika playing dual roles. During the same month, another film ‘Aayitha Ezhuthu’ directed by Mani Rathnam was released on May 21, 2004…. The film had Madhavan, Trisha, Meera Jasmine, and Siddarth together in lead role.

And nearly for a year, he didn’t take up any projects….

Surya, Karthi, and Sivakumar PhotosOn March 2005, ‘Maayavi’ directed by Bala’s assistant Singam Puli had Surya and Jyothika pairing up together…. The same year had yet another blockbuster ‘Ghajini’ directed by Murugadoss hitting screens on September 2005. Yearend was another commercial entertainer ‘Aaru’ releasing.

Family life…

Surya isn’t just a perfect actor, but a great family man too. Being an obedient son, he won his parents’ wish in marrying Actress Jyothika. The marriage took place on September 11, 2006. The following year, they were gifted with a beautiful daughter ‘Diya’. His sister Brindha was married first before his nuptials.
