Did You Know Suriya Initially Said No To Playing Rolex In Vikram?

Suriya won the Best Actor award for his performance in director Sudha Kongara Prasad's Soorarai Pottru. The actor arrived in Bengaluru with his wife Jyotika. He went on to receive his award on stage. Actor Ramesh Aravind hosted the event and asked him about Rolex and how he decided to be part of Kamal Haasan's Vikram. Suriya played a cameo role as Rolex, the syndicate head of the drug society. Suriya's explosive cameo won rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. In fact, fans are eagerly awaiting the sequel where Rolex and Dilli (played by Karthi in Kaithi) could clash.

Talking at FilmFare 2020, Suriya said, "Whatever I’m today, no matter what I’m doing in life, Kamal sir would’ve always been my inspiration. When he called and said there was an opportunity, I didn’t want to let go of it. I want to share this with everyone. Whenever you’re scared, that’s when you want to jump. It was a last-minute decision. I was going to call and tell Lokesh, I won’t do it. But I did it for one man." When asked if Rolex would come back, he said, "I think time will answer. If it comes, I will do it."
