How you entered into media? : From my childhood, I had a wish to act in movies. I love to watch all kind of acts which is happening in village festival like “Valli Thirumanam” and all kind of acts. Due to that inspiration I came to Chennai to become an actor but I don’t have any family background so I struggled a lot to get a chance.
Initially I came to Chennai and started a film production company “Madurai Touring Talkies” with my childhood friend M.Manikandan (Director of Kaaka Muttai). Then I joined in Koothup-Pattarai acting drama school in 2010.
Myself, Karthik subburaj (director of jigarthanda) and my friend Manikandan produced many short films under stone bench (Thuru, Raavanm, petticase, wind, aram etc).
Hero as best friend : I haven’t done much films so I don’t have great friend circle in cine filed but I could say Vijay Sethupathi is my best friend who was there & still for me and my success.
Favorite Actor: Kamalahassan and M.G.R are my inspiration. I always wonder on their acts.
Upcoming Projects: Oru Kanavu pola (as a Hero), Kallar and Siluvarpatti (as a Villan)
Would you prefer to act as a Villan or Hero? I would love to do all kind of characters since I have to be strong & success into this field.
Journey Started : My journey starts by 2008, for 3 years I do go places to attend audition and got an chance.
Proud Moment: I haven’t achieved in Cine filed yet but I always proud as a Tamizhan to be a part of Jallikattu protest and I did travel along with my friends from Alangnallur to Chennai (The first group which travelled from Alanganallur). I proud of myself to be a part of history.

Dream: My dream is to plant trees as much as I can. So far, I planted more than 300 trees and young people should come forward to do this.
Memorandum: I would like to say only one thing to the Fresher’s. Media is open to all and anybody can attain the success but when you come as a fresher please do have a source for second income for your basic needs. Media is something very big when you see outwardly but it is like a sea which has no end. If you want to swim in the sea you should ready to face challenges.
