The Ghajini star claimed that he has followed the footsteps of Kamal Hassan. "We all need inspiration. It's only because of inspiration that we follow a certain path in life. The path I've chosen and I'm currently walking on in my career is the one that was used by Kamal sir. He's been my biggest inspiration," Surya said at the audio launch.
Surya added, "It's because of him that I've taken efforts in my career, changed myself and will continue to walk on the path he has shown me. He's like my brother and because of this relationship, I feel closely related to him. He's taught me so many things, has stood by me and continues to look after me."
Talking about the trailer and songs of Cuckoo, Surya said that he was impressed by the visuals and wants to bow down to the team for touching his heart. "The film features a young team and that makes it very special. I would like to bow to the team for touching my heart with their first creation. We may have made commercially successful films, but we haven't made a film that tugged at hearts," he added.
Surya ended on the note that Cuckoo would remain a special film of 2014.
