Suriya and Jyothika Love Story

Suriya was born in July 1975 in Tamil Nadu. He is the son of the legend Tamil actor Sivakumar while both his brother Karthi and sister Brindha were familiar names to Tamil audience. People used to speculate that Suriya would marry someone from a privileged Tamil cinema family but he shocked all when falling in love with a woman who didn’t know Tamil at all. And she’s the only one he loves.

Suriya had his debut in 1997 but didn’t gain popularity till 2001 with the Tamil movie Nandha. The year 2001 was also a turning point in Suriya and Jyothika love story though he already met her in 1999.

Surya-Jyothika reportedly met while filming Poovellam Kettuppar. This is the third film of Jyothika when Suriya had done four movies before this. As Suriya and Jyothika were not big names at this time, they tried their best to impress the audience. Specifically, Jyothika came from Mumbai and she didn’t know a Tamil word earlier. However, she tried to learn the language gradually to complete her dialogues.

It’s Jyothika’s hard work and dedication for the movie that impressed Suriya. He also shared that he felt something special in this woman through the way she treated assistants with kindness. However, they didn’t approach each other given Suriya’s reserved personality at that time.

With Jyothika’s talent and serious working attitude, she soon rose to fame after Vaali (1999) and Kushi (2000). In 2001, when she was then a big star in Tamil industry, she met Suriya for the second time. And their love story began.

One day in 2001 when Jyothika was filming, she came across Suriya. She asked her assistant to reach him and they had their first conversations with each other. Suriya and Jyothika quickly became close friends for their parallel characteristics. The actor often invited her to parties and events with his close friend groups. Meanwhile, Jyothika was seen joining his Nandha movie release in the projector room by the end of 2001.

What made Suriya and Jyothika love story a life-long journey is probably their support for the other side. In 2003, Jyothika recommended Suriya’s name for the lead roles in the Tamil action thriller Kaakha Kaakha in which she also plays the female protagonist.

As she was a big star, director Gautham Menon agreed with the suggestion and Suriya’s performance finalized the deal. Suriya and Jyothika had their reel love life just simply as that. And this movie turned out to be the most successful film of Suriya during his career, taking him to the A list of Tamil actors.
