It has been happening over the ancient period of Tamil Cinema of where the comedy actors made their endeavoring journeys as heroes. On the button, it all started from the days of veteran actor N.S. Krishnan as he successful made his appearance as onscreen hero hop-skipping from his comedy roles.

Off the late, our grandparents wholeheartedly appreciated Nagesh’s prominences as lead characters in ‘Server Sundaram’, ‘Neer Kumili’ and ‘Ethir Neechal’ incredulously elevated him to greater standards. And then came, the all-time comedy duo Goundamani-Senthil, who played major roles and resulted in the success of many films that even didn’t carry well known actors. The modern phase has witnessed the emerging of various comedy actors making the way to the epitome of success as heroes.

Actors Vivek, Vadivelu, Santhanam, Ganja Karuppu and Karunas have already made their stupendous shows as heroes and won the hearts of millions.

Vivek: The actor’s debut film ‘Solli Adippaen’ is still under wraps and is unveiled due to some constraints. But somehow, the actor has got himself a credit over becoming a hero in spite of that film being unreleased.

Vadivelu: Two films based on unique themes made his career so best. ‘Imsai Arasan 23m Pulikesi’ and ‘Indiralogathil Na Azhagappan’ got him innumerable praises from all ends. Though, he wasn’t offered with lead roles in films ‘Winner’ and ‘Giri’, the film’s result doubtlessly succeeded with his show.

Santhanam and Ganja Karuppu: This duo played the lead role in ‘Arai En 305il Kadavul’ that was loosely based on Hollywood’s ‘Bruce Almighty’. Apart from making comedies, they had something to deliver emoting to various extents.

Karunas: Amongst all these actors, Karunas leads the race as both his films ‘Dindukal Saarathy’ and ‘Ambasamudaram Ambani’ has impressed the universal audiences. His very nature of choosing socio-commercial themes gets him closely related with the audiences.

Subject makes the film more at its best and the way it’s presented matters a lot than the star-values. Of course, these actors have proved this mantra so ardently with their earnest works and let’s wish them continue working on the same tactics.
