Santhanam and his 12s in 2012.
With not so big competitions from other comedians, Santhanam is the most wanted artist today in Kollywood for every big/small film no matter how busy he is in other movies. Its been a long journey for him and for the past 4 years his average number of films per year is close to 10 and that proves his demand.
This year-2012 was no less, he appeared in 12 movies inlcuding 1 telugu dubbing film “Vinayaga” and 1 cameo for “PodaaPodi”. Inspite of having acted in 10 major films for this year, his role as ‘Partha’ in “Oru Kal Oru Kannadi” (OKOK) and ‘VettuPuli’ in “Kalakalappu” were highly appreciated!
Even if the films did not work at the Box Office, his roles like ‘Rajini’ in “Saguni”; ‘Chari’ in “Mirattal; ‘Sathyan’ in “Thaandavam” and ‘Prakash’ in “Neethane En Ponvasantham” got massive response from audience with his one liners and comic sense.
He tried his best with some variety in his other movies this year with “Muppozhudhum Un Karpanaigal”, “Leelai”, “Ishtam” and “Naan Ee” .
Recently he was named the “Comedy Superstar” by the “Settai” makers and will soon showcase his name in every film he acts and he happily agreed to this idea.
With almost 20 films he is currently committed, we can expect loads of films almost every month next year in 2013 where he will be sharing screen with TOP 4 KOLLYWOOD PILLARS- Vijay, Ajith, Suriya and Vikram. Is this going to a create a new record or just a co-incidence? Right now, the wait is for “Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya”, “Alex Pandian” and “Madha Gaja Raja”. Let us wait and watch… 🙂 😉
