On Malayalam superstar Mohanlal’s personal invitation, actor Suriya recently attended the 25th-anniversary event of the Association of Malayalam Movie Artists (AMMA) held at Trivandrum. The actor heaped praises on the Malayalam film industry for making “finest films of Indian cinema.”
He said the Malayalam film industry always inspires the Tamil film industry, appreciating Take Off and Sudani from Nigeria. He also thanked the people of Kerala for being a wonderful host to students from Tamil Nadu, who had come to the state to take NEET exams.
Suriya, who enjoys a huge fan following in Kerala, was given a rousing reception. The twin pillars of Malayalam cinema Mohanlal and Mammootty joined him on stage and thanked him for being part of the star-studded event.
On stage, Suriya congratulated Mammootty as he was celebrating his wedding anniversary and asked the secret behind his good looks.
The Singam star also contributed a sum of Rs 10 lakh to AMMA’s Guru Dhaksana Programme (pension plan for senior artists).
