He is the action star, the man who voices a thousand bombastic words like many missiles shot together. But he has been trapped in his own image. Sureshgopi symbolizes the macho police official who fights injustice not only with his physical might, but also with his words and his sharp intelligence. But at the end of the day, the superstar as he has been lovely referred to has been stereotyped in an image. Added to that the actor has to withstand the criticism for accepting movies offered by all and sundry.
Sureshgopi has finally decided to break his silence. “That I act in movies without paying heed to the quality has raised much criticism. I have always thought that when I contribute one more movie, then more people would get work in this field. Veterans like Prem Nazir had set this example for us. From henceforth however I have decided to be more oraginized in my work."
