Chennai: Suriya is the Tamil actor who came into the limelight not only in India but on the international platform after his two successful movies, Soorarai Pottru and Jai Bhim. These two movies have made him an international figure, and he has become the first Tamil actor to be invited to the Oscars committee. Suriya undoubtedly achieved a big milestone by getting recognition on such a huge podium.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences invited 397 artists and executives to join the Class of 2022. Among the coveted list, three Indians have been invited this year: Suriya, Kajol, and Reema Kagti. They will represent India this year.
Suriya has had several blockbuster movies under his belt, but Suriya’s Jai Bhim and Soorarai Pottru, which were released on Amazon Prime Video, have changed his career and made him an international personality in a short span of time. These two films have huge followings.
There will be 71 Oscar nominees and 15 winners to join the class of 2022. Joining the Oscar committee is an astonishing achievement for the actor.
This year’s Oscar winners Ariana DeBose, Troy Kotsur, and CODA writer-director Sian Heder will also be part of the programme as directors and writers branches. As per Deadline.com, there are a total of 17 AMPAS branches, including directors and writers.
The other notable invitees in the Oscar 2022 committee are: Billie Eilish, Finneas O’Connell, Caitrione Balfe, Jesse Buckley, Olga Merediz, Kodi Smit-MPhee, Anya Taylor Joy, and so on.
Kudos to Suriya for achieving a thunderous milestone as an actor.
