Following the small but peppy number he crooned for the ‘Sunrise’ coffee commercial, Suriya is said to be in demand from directors and producers to sing songs in their upcoming films.
After Kamal Haasan, Rajinikanth, Vikram, Simbu and Dhanush, Sivakarthikeyan recently joined the list of ‘singing heroes’ by singing a song in Varuthapadadha Valibar Sangam, his latest film. Suriya, who hasn’t given in to the temptation of singing on-screen, was recently encouraged to sing for the ‘Sunrise’ commercial. The song has now caught the attention of his fans and music-lovers.
Harris Jayaraj, who has scored the music of many of Suriya’s hit films in the past, had been trying his best for the past decade or so to make Suriya sing at least one song in any of of films. So far, Suriya hasn’t agreed to it but now that he has sung for a commercial, Harris feels that the ‘doors have opened’ and intends to make Suriya sing soon in his film(s).
Besides Harris, many producers, directors and music directors have reportedly been making calls to Suriya of late with a demand to sing songs in their films. In fact, Suriya’s cell-phone has been ringing non-stop during the past few weeks with offers to sing in films rather than act in them!
