In Tamil cinema, a guest role serves many purposes. It is a little treat for the audience as they have paid to see a particular star, and the appearance of another one is an added bonus. Special guest stars enliven the proceeding considerably and really fire up the viewers. Finally, it is a great way for the stars themselves to promote goodwill as they are doing the director, producer, or/and leading man a small favor and it makes them come across as good sports.

In recent times, there have been some memorable guest appearances.

Arya in Siva Manasula Sakthi

Arya practically set the trend for special guest appearances with his surprise entry in Siva Manasula Sakthi as a prospective groom for the hero’s love interest. He proves to be instrumental in getting the bickering lovebirds back together. And he looked so dapper and dashing that every female in the audience went into an absolute tizzy!

Jiiva in Boss Engira Baskaran

Jiiva returned the favor in Boss Engira Baskaran and turned up as a last minute contender for the heroine’s affection. It was a delightfully tongue-in-cheek performance and had the audience in splits.

Suriya in Manmadhan Ambu

Suriya put in an appearance as himself in Manmadhan Ambu with Kamal Hassan and Madhavan. It was a neat little trick and Maddy became super jealous of him! He is also doing a very special appearance in Avan Ivan.

Dhanush in Seedan

Dhanush did a fine turn as a cook in Subramaniya Siva’s Seedan as a special favor to him. The two had worked before in Thiruda Thirudi. It was a lovely gesture for the busy star.
