His director K S Ravikumar has disclosed this at the audio and trailer launch of Aadhavan a few days ago. "The effort and hard work Surya has put in for 15 days to play the part of a ten-year-old in the film is unbelievable," he disclosed, and added that Surya is full of admiration for Kamal Hassan, who had played ten different roles in Dasaavathaaram, after playing the part.
"Surya was wondering how Kamal sir managed to play so many roles so well, when it was difficult to play one role," Ravikumar, said to loud cheers from fans gathered to witness the launch.
After Kamal has appeared as 2.5 foot Appu in Apoorva Sahotharangal, it is Surya's turn to woo audiences ina similar get up. But this time Surya is going to appear as a 10 year old boy in his forthcoming film Aadhavan.
