Santhanam as fans know is the most sought after actor in the Tamil industry now. From the big superstars to upcoming actors, everyone wants a piece of the 'comedy king' who is known for his witty one-liners and natural comic timing.
Santhanam jokingly compares himself to 'Silk' Smitha who was also similarly wildly popular some decades back. Most of the films in the 80s would have an appearance from the late glam queen in a scene or song. In the same way, Santhanam is present in almost every release nowadays in his trademark funny avatar.
He says that he can’t refuse offers as most of these offers are from friends who want him in a scene or two. The audiences aren’t complaining though, as they just can’t seem to have enough of the comedy king.
