    In my opinion I regard The best makkal pugazvendan is superstar Suriya after his awe some performance in movies.After M.G.R -Rajnin- now its Suriya the versatile actor as a rashsome,fighting and dance.If ever u make a movie like NINAITHAALE INIKKUM dont forget surya to play the role of rajni or If marmayogi the role of M.G.R it suits well with surya rather than viji or aji.
