However, it was in 1999 that Suri got his break in Bollywood with a supporting role in the movie Pyaar Mein Kabhi Kabhi.

In 2005, he delivered a critically acclaimed performance in My Brother... Nikhil playing the character of a homosexual who is HIV Positive. The film received unanimous praise among Indian film critics. The film fared decently in Mumbai, but did not get similar response elsewhere in India.
