'I was chased by a policeman while sitting penniless on the shores enjoying the waves and stars of night. Now I thank him earnestly. He made me dream about building a big house at the same place and today I have it' said Prakash Raj in one of his interviews. Prakash Raj, who turns 48 today had ardently followed an inspiring quote of Morgan Freeman in Shawshank Redemption - HOPE IS A GOOD THING. Of course, he stands out as an epitome of perfection and dedication in what he does. His life has been an open book as his philosophies are so much binding to our hearts.

He started his career out as a baddie in K. Balachander's Duet and then continued to come up with his best in any role he did. His ultimate ticket to gateway of success came through National Award for Best Supporting Actor in Manirathnam's 'Iruvar' for his outstanding performance and instantly made a breakthrough in negative role with 'Ghilli'. Ten years after Iruvar, his doors were knocked for yet another honour - Best Actor National Award for his unbeatable work in Priyadarshan's Kanchivaram.

His fame isn't confined to the boundaries of Kodambakkam, but extends to the farthest ends and Bollywood isn't an exception. He has persistently won incredible laurels for his spellbinding performance opposite Hindi superstars Salman Khan and Ajay Devgn in films like 'Singham', 'Wanted' and 'Dabangg 2'.

Well, it's not an easy task to play negative role opposite two generation of actors. That's the power of an actor and the compelling energy that keeps him going.

The actor has made a stunning back to small screen post-SAHANA (small screen series, which is a sequel to famous classic film SINDHU BHAIRAVI) with the second season of Neengalum Vellalaam Oru Kodi in Vijay TV.

As an affectionate father in 'Abhiyum Naanum', a challenger in 'Iruvar' and a applaudable baddie in 'Ghilli'.

Keep us entertained for more years to come and Top 10 Cinema wishes you a very happy birthday Prakash Raj.
