No more light, start, action for Arvind Samy
Aug 13, 2006
No one can ever forget Arvind Samy for his class and panache style of acting in movies like, Dhalapathi, Roja and Bombay. He grabbed the limelight with his debut performance in Dhalapathi as Manirathnam’s invention to the movie scene.

Though the movie had the overwhelming performance of two superstars Rajini and Mammooty, Arvind’s subtle acting did not fail to seize attention.

He became a heartthrob of girls all over the nation overnight with his Bombay and if that’s not enough, his performance in movies like Roja and Bombay were hailed by the Times magazine generating him international acclaim. But, surprising he was not taken aback.

After a few movies, he blissfully retired from the scene and he is not to be seen in the movies anymore. His recent stint was in the movie ‘Alaipayudhey’, probably because he could not turn Mani, his mentor down. His ‘Sasanam’ is released recently commercially, though the movie was shot in 1998.

Samy says he did not charge for the movie. He states that if he had claimed for his remuneration, it would have exceeded the movie’s budget. He further informs us that he had a thing for simple movies and the Mahendran magic attracted him towards the movie.

Well, what is he upto these days? Blissfully taking care of his business as a HR solutions provider and he considers that secondary, the first being playing the part of a father to his children. He turned down invitations to be in the jury duty at Delhi owing to his commitments as father. He says his children come first in his life.

If not as an actor, does he have any plans to become a director at least? Not really, he casually says. He wants to concentrate mainly on his kids and business. Cinema does not seem to be in his priorities. Well, Tamil cinema is in deprivation of a great talent.
