Milpitas, California: On the special occasion of SINGAM2's 25th Day of continuous screening as well as 100th Show in California Bay Area (San Francisco and San Jose), Suriya joined his US fans from his house at Chennai through video conference and spent two hours of wonderful interaction with a wide spectrum of fans ranging from four years old child to 50+ years old seniors living in California Bay Area (San Francisco and San Jose area).
Venkatesh Babu, Exhibitor of SINGAM2 for North California (Bay Area and Sacramento) on behalf of ATMUS entertainment, organized this video conference with the great support from Suriya and his team. The interaction between Suriya and his fans was very lively and enjoyable. Each fan came with their family and sat in front of the video camera and interacted directly with Suriya by asking questions, while everyone else were watching both Suriya and the fan (asking question) side-by-side in the big screen of Serra Theatres, Milpitas, where the video conference was conducted by the Exhibitor, as shown in the enclosed photo.
Suriya was very open and honest, and gave detailed answers to all the questions from the fans. While answering to kids, he really answered with tremendous amount of happiness! For elders, he gave lot of respect while answering their questions. When a teenage fan put in a request, Suriya instantly delivered the most popular SINGAM punch dialogue "Singatha photo-la paathiruppa, cinema-la paathiruppa...ongi adichaa onra ton weightu-da...paakuriyaa..." with the same furious expressions. Wow! It was a unique enjoyable moment for all the fans attending the video conference.
Suriya has created records through SINGAM2 and this interactive event through video conference is also a record as this is the first time, a big movie star is interacting with his US based Fans through video conference just like how US Corporations conduct meetings with their India IT team.
On behalf of all the California Bay Area Fans, the exhibitor would like to sincerely thank Suriya for spending his valuable time from his busy schedule and interact with his fans. Its indeed a memorable experience for all the fans who interacted with Suriya and the level of respect for Suriya has increased multi-fold among the fans! Hats off to Suriya and best wishes for all success! Special thanks to Serra Theaters for allowing their facility to conduct the video conference right after screening the 100th Bay Area Show of SINGAM2.
