Chennai: Tamil actor Suriya Sivakumar said Tuesday that he has shaped his career in the footsteps of actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan, whom he considers his biggest inspiration.

Suriya shared the dais with Kamal here at the audio launch of Tamil drama 'Cuckoo'.

"We all need inspiration. It's only because of inspiration that we follow a certain path in life. The path I've chosen and I'm currently walking on in my career is the one that was used by Kamal sir. He's been my biggest inspiration," Suriya told reporters at the audio launch.

"It's because of him that I've taken efforts in my career, changed myself and will continue to walk on the path he has shown me. He's like my brother and because of this relationship, I feel closely related to him. He's taught me so many things, has stood by me and continues to look after me," he said.

Suriya co-released the audio of the film with Kamal.

Directed by Raja Murugan, 'Cuckoo' features Dinesh and Malavika Nair in lead roles. It's the love story of two blind characters.

Suriya said he was touched by the film's trailer, which was released during the event.

"The film features a young team and that makes it very special. I would like to bow to the team for touching my heart with their first creation. We may have made commercially successful films, but we haven't made a film that tugged at hearts," he added.

"I'm sure 'Cuckoo' will be a special film of this year. All doors will be now open for the director, including the doors of my production house 2D," said Suriya.

Jointly produced by Fox Star Studios and The Next Big Films, the film is slated for summer release.
