Surya heaped laurels on his co-star Shruti Hassan (in 7am Arivu) at a media meet in Chennai pon Monday.
Speaking on the occasion, he said, ‘ she is a dedicated and wonderful performer. It gave me jitters to work with daughter of Kamal Hassan initially. She played her part well and all has come god.
Surya addeds, ‘ the movie is a sci-fi medical thriller. I play Bodhidharman, who has contributed to zen, founding of Shaolin Temple and revered as an Indian monk worldwide.’
The movie has cinematography by Ravi K Chandran, action choreographed by Peter Hein, editing by Anthony and art direction by Rajeevan.
It is the story of Buddhist monk Bodhidharman who lived in 6th century. Harris Jayaraj worked really hard to give a Chinese song. With Surya playing the lead role, it has got a fresh colour, says director A.R Murugadoss.
