CareerEdit

Suresh started his career as an editing assistant and a dance assistant. One of his father's friends thought that he could become a successful lead actor. Suresh approached director C. V. Sridhar with a portfolio but was turned down. A few years later, Suresh played the lead in three of Sridhar's films. He then met director duo Santhana Bharathi and P. Vasu, who cast him as the lead in Panneer Pushpangal (1981).[1] Suresh was simultaneously offered the lead role in Bharathiraja's Alaigal Oivathillai (1981), which he turned down for the former film. Both films were large commercial successes.[2] He became the prominent face of the Tamil Film Industry, through the 80’s era. Suresh played the role of a lover in many films and produced four films and seven television serials before taking a hiatus in the 1990s. During the period he enhanced his career in Telugu cinema.

Suresh made a comeback to Tamil cinema in 2006 with Kizhakku Kadalkarai Salai starring Srikanth. He played supporting roles including in Aasal (2010) alongside Ajith Kumar.[3] In 2012, Suresh appeared in the Tamil-Telugu bilingual film Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi directed by Balaji Mohan, playing the character of Akilan Venkatesan, who was going through a mid-life crisis. A reviewer for The Hindu called the entire cast "effective".[4]

Suresh has hosted and judged six seasons of the competitive cooking game show Kitchen Superstar for Vijay TV.[5]

As a dubbing/voice-over artist, Suresh was the Tamil voice of the actor Ajith Kumar in Aasai (1995) and the actor Nagarjuna in Idhayathai Thirudathe (1989), Siva (1989), Ratchagan (1997), Ooty (2012), and Manam (2016).[6]

From 2018 to 2020, he has starred opposite Khushbu Sundar in the bilingual daily serial Lakshmi Stores.[7]
