The Vaaranam Aayiram director questioned the Karthi about the reaction his brother had on watching his first film, to which he replied that Suriya actually saw the movie pretty late.
Karthi reveals Suriya hugged him for the first time after watching the film
Talking about his brother’s reaction, Karthi revealed that Suriya watched Paruthiveeran pretty late due to his own commitments. He also added that after watching the film Suriya was mesmerized by the performance, and hugged him. A loose translation of what Karthi said would be:
“I remember clearly… I was sleeping, because I wasn’t even sure if the film would be released or not. There was so much trouble over the release date, and had even been postponed twice… Finally Anna (elder brother, Suriya) came, and put in all the necessary money, to make sure the film was released. So, he finally saw the film very late. I think first time he hugged me. He hugged me for the first time after watching that film. He smiled, and asked me ‘What have you done!?’”
