Santhanam’s foraying into Tamil cinema did not happen by chance. His rib-tickling work in a Television series called Lollu Sabha, a satirical spoof on Tamil cinema directed by Ram Bala, was the turning point in his career. And, the actor essayed the role of Simbu’s friend in Manmadhan which marked his debut in Kollywood in 2004. Now, only after a decade, he has donned the greasepaint as a lead hero in Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham.
Now, Santhanam wants to keep the ball rolling and has already given nod for his next film. It is titled Dhilluku Duttu and will be directed by Murugananth of Lollu Sabha team. Given the reputation of Lollu Sabha, the film is expected to be a full-fledged entertainer. Other details on the cast and crew are awaited.
