Suriya turns 45: Dulquer Salmaan, Rakul Preet Singh, Nivin Pauly wish actor on birthday
On his birthday, Suriya launched the song 'Kaattu Payale' from his next movie Soorarai Pottru.
Suriya is a multi-faceted talent having worked as an actor, producer and TV presenter for years. Thursday, 23 July, marks his 45th birthday.
Fans started wishing Suriya from Wednesday itself. They posted pictures and video edits on his birthday eve. The deluge of posts led to '#HappyBirthdaySuriya' become one of the top trends on Twitter.
On the occasion, the actor shared a poster on Twitter to launch the song 'Kaattu Payale' from his next movie Soorarai Pottru. The film is based on the life of Air Deccan founder Captain GR Gopinath. Jackie Shroff, Karunas, Paresh Rawal and Mohan Babu will also be seen in pivotal roles.
Suriya recently announced another new project Aruvaa with longtime collaborator Hari. Aruvaa is the duo's sixth film together after Velu, Aaru, Singam, Singam II and Singam 3 (known as Si3).
The first look of his third upcoming feature Vaadivasal, directed by Vetrimaaran, was also unveiled on his birthday. The Hindu writes that the film is reportedly based on Jallikattu, the traditional bull chasing sport of Tamil Nadu.

In an industry that insists that star kids are the next best thing, the title Most Eligible Bachelor is annoyingly declarative. But thankfully here, the title is not an assertion, but an interrogation.
The emotional beats are inconsistent and overly melodramatic, bordering on preachy in a few instances.
Krish, Rakul Preet Singh, Vaishnav Tej on telling the shepherd community's story through Konda Polam
"I have always romanticised shepherds crossing the mountains with their sheep as it creates a beautiful picture, but when I read this book, it took me by surprise as it revealed the real struggles that they were facing," says director Krish on adapting the book Konda Polam into a film.
