‘Parotta’ Soori is making waves. Last week, Soori, lodged a complaint with the Chennai Commissioner of Police claiming that fake Facebook and Twitter accounts had been created in his name.
And miscreants were using these forums to post derogatory messages about leading actors in an attempt to defame him, he charged. A peeved Soori told the press: “I don’t have even a basic knowledge about the internet, let alone Twitter and Facebook.”
Soori rose to fame after his role in the film Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu (2009), in which the scene involving a parotta eating challenge earned him the nickname Parotta Soori. The Madurai born actor has done over 50 films as comedian in the last four years.
Today Soori is fast emerging as competition for Santhanam, the number one comedian. Soori’s recent films like Sundarapandian, Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga, Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam, Pandiya Nadu has put him in the big league.
And now Soori is doing his first full length comedian in big hero film with Jilla. He has scenes with Vijay and Mohanlal and is there throughout the film. At the moment he has nearly 16 films on hand and is working round the clock.
