Comedian turned hero Santhanam's Sakka Podu Podu Raja all set to release on December 22. "I don't want to confuse the audiences, you can only see me as a hero and not comedian henceforth", says Santhanam.

"I'm bored of playing stereotypical comedian in films. I will continue doing films with comedy as predominant factor but no more regular  comedian", the Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham actor adds.

"Even in Selvaraghavan’s Mannavan Vanthanadi, I suggested a few comedy sequences and he gladly accepted", says Santhanam.

"STR debuts as a music composer with Sakka Podu Podu Raja. He introduced me to the industry, now my film marks his musical debut, it's a proud moment for me" exclaims the actor.

STR has completed the entire songs in one month and the rerecording work is also over. "STR is very happy with the film, he enjoyed the hilarious portions in the second half and in the rerecording, he gave me mass BGM like Ajith and Vijay movies", says an excited Santhanam.

Talking about his competition with Sivakarthikeyan, "I'm not competing with Sivakarthikeyan. Yes, my film and Siva's film (Velaikkaran) are releasing on the same day. I always welcome healthy competition", he says.
