Comedian Santhanam was the most integral part of Tamil cinema and there wasn't a single top hero or director who wanted to make a film without Santa in it. He was one of the busiest comedians who used to work two shifts.
But after seeing the massive success of his films and the credit going to the heroes who were piggy back riding on him, Santhanam decided that he will be doing films only as the leading man. He stopped doing side-kick/hero's friend roles and groomed himself to turn hero.
And to be honest Santhanam looked much more handsome than any of our successful heroes. But sadly he isn't creating any waves in K-town as a hero and his films has no takers. His last film Sakka Podu Podu Raja was a colossal flop and he has Server Sundaram, Mannavan Vanthanadi and Odi Odi Uzhaikanum waiting to be sold and released
And now he has started shooting for Dhillukku Dhuddu-2 today in Hyderabad. Director Rambala, who made the first part of the film which was an average grosser is directing this sequel and newcomer Deepti is said to be playing the female lead.
“Happy to join with the blockbuster team once again. Positive Vibes all over. First long Schedule in Hyderabad commences today. Need all your blessings for our next successful endeavour #DhillukuDhuddu2”, tweeted Santhanam.
