Suniel Shetty: Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan can convince people
Suniel Shetty was here in Chennai on Thursday to promote GM Modular, one of the fastest growing switches and home automation company in India. “I am excited and happy to be a part of the GM family because I honestly believe that they are the best and I say that because I have seen their facilities and the quality of their products. I have been using GM products in our very home, so it was exciting when they came to me and asked to be their brand ambassador”, said Suniel Shetty.
Talking about the recent offers he gets in South, Suniel says “ I don’t want to be a part of something negative. South Indian audiences are hardcore fans of actors and if I get a chance to play the baddie opposite Rajinikanth, I don’t want Chennai to beat me up”, he laughs. “I’ve maintained myself. Gladly media kept me alive, you can soon expect an official announcement on my next film”, added the actor. “I always respected South Film Industry. Each and every film in South has an emotional connect, 90% of Suniel Shetty’s films are remade from here. The sincerity of filmmakers, cinematographers and actors here are impeccable. The audiences are faithful, they believe a hero should be larger than life and that’s what I believe in, which is not the case in Bollywood”.
Suniel’s son has trained in London, he has been signed by Sajid Nadiadwala, a leading producer in Bollywood. “But at the end of the day, his hard work and destiny will decide his future in the industry”, says the actor. Suniel says he is excited hosting TV shows because he gets to meet common people and spread awareness on fitness to the general public. The actor will soon start a new show for children on the healthy diet and indulge them in at least one physical activity. “You don’t need a box of protein powder to build your body, your mom’s food is the best thing in the world. I would say food in the south is as good as north”, said Suniel Shetty.
“Politics is a no-no for me. Rajini sir and Kamal sir are gods in terms of acting so they are the best to set examples for actors to enter politics and both can convince people. As a fellow actor, I respect their body of work. They don’t need to speak to me, I will be willing to do anything for them. Not only Rajini and Kamal, I admire works of Chiranjeevi garu and Nagarjuna here in South Film industry”, said Suniel. “I admire unique qualities in each and every actor even in Bollywood. If it’s Shah Rukh, I love his energy. Aamir is best when it comes to script selection and I’m a big fan of Salman Khan’s attitude”, signed off Suniel, who is planning to start a one-stop portal for entertainment based news for audiences in India.
