Hindi Debut

Suman is making his debut in a Hindi film Gabbar being directed by Krish Jagar. He says he got many offers to work in the North after Sivaji but preferred to wait for a right platform. He adds, “I have seen lot of people coming back disappointed. I didn’t want to do a negative role where a villain will be violent and vulgar towards women. I don’t mind working in a role that has a person misusing power, does exploitation, corruption. Whatever is being reflected in society, how things have to be corrected all that will be shown, this Tagore remake is not outdated and also fresh scenes are being added. “ Suman reveals that Akshay Kumar saw Sivaji and was very keen on having Suman playing the villain. There are a lot of South people working in the unit, Tamilians and Telugus. Sruthi Hassan and Kareena Kapoor are part of the project.
