While it is not rare to see Suriya scale a stage as an actor, it was absolutely refreshing to see him take the grandstand as a producer in the audio launch function of 36 Vayadhinile.
What made him a special producer though is his efforts to help his wife Jyothika make a comeback. Venkat Prabhu summed up the situation by saying, "It's not an easy job for a husband to make his wife happy, but Suriya is really great for being so different".
The event was packed with many prominent personalities and everyone of them were genuinely happy for Jyothika's comeback into the film industry.
Making a public appearance along with their family for the first time, the star couple were overjoyed as they were showered with love and wishes.
An apparently emotional Jyothika thanked Suriya for letting her pursue her passion and dreams. She also thanked all her directors and went on to state that 36 Vayadhinile is one of the best film in her career.
Suriya's brother Karthi launched the trailer after which everyone present were treated with a single track, 'Rasathi' along with its making.
All the songs composed by Santhosh Narayanan is already a hit with many referring the song 'Rasathi' as the icing on the cake for a finely crafted album.
36 Vayadhinile is the official remake of the hit Malayalam film How Old Are You, directed by Rosshan Andrrews who helmed the original. It is expected to be released in the next couple of months.
