South star Suriya Sivakumar found a top spot on the trends list on Thursday as he checked on to social media to announce h's back on film sets. Suriya was diagnosed with COVID-19 in February and was admitted to a Chennai hospital. He tested negative in a few days and returned home but only to remain in quarantine for a brief period.

Tagging the film's team, Suriya shared his feelings of resuming work and wrote: "Feels good to be back on sets!"

Here's what Suriya Sivakumar tweeted about returning to work:
On February 11, Suriya's brother Karthi, also an actor, shared an update about his health and wrote: "Anna is back home and all safe! Will be in home quarantine for a few days. Can't thank you all enough for the prayers and best wishes."

Karthi's tweet was a follow up to Suriya's post, revealing he had contracted the coronavirus. He posted a tweet in Tamil, which translates to: "I am undergoing treatment for Covid-19 and am better now. Let us all realise that life hasn't returned to normalcy yet. We also cannot be filled with fear and let life come to a standstill. We still need to be careful and safe. Lots of love and gratitude to the dedicated doctors and medical staff standing by my side."
'கொரோனா' பாதிப்பு ஏற்பட்டு, சிகிச்சை பெற்று நலமுடன் இருக்கிறேன். வாழ்க்கை இன்னும் இயல்பு நிலைக்கு திரும்பவில்லை என்பதை அனைவரும் உணர்வோம். அச்சத்துடன் முடங்கிவிட முடியாது. அதேநேரம் பாதுகாப்பும், கவனமும் அவசியம். அர்ப்பணிப்புடன் துணைநிற்கும் மருத்துவர்களுக்கு அன்பும், நன்றிகளும்.— Suriya Sivakumar (@Suriya_offl) February 7, 2021
