No mean task considering they had 8 super hit plays doing 1200 shows in the 8 year period till 1978.

Having established himself as theatre personality to

reckon with, he went ahead and started his own theatre troupe ‘Priyadarshini’ which gave 9 super hit plays that did more than a 1000 shows in Tamilnadu and other Indian states as well, for which he was story creator/actor, director and producer. The popularity he received for his plays had reached far and wide, securing a place in Tamils across India, which bought along with it film offers. He acted in about 42 feature films donning various roles, all significant nonetheless. His contribution in the shooting of his stage plays into TV serials was tremendous.

At this juncture in 1990 he shifted base to the US and has till date been actively involved with the South Indian Tamil Association, conducting stage plays and debates. He also dabbled with TV serial production, 2 serials of 54 episodes each and dialogue instructor for artistes and actors. It was during his stay in the US that he came to be known as Atlanta Ganesh.

His big break came in the form of a cross-over film Dance to My Tunes, which was shot in Mauritius for which post production work is underway.

Earlier that year he joined hands with producer Mr.Mahendar Jogani and started MG creations producing 2 such films under that banner that belong to the cross over genre, titled My Dear Father and Self Defence, in both English and Tamil. These movies featured relatively popular actors such as Y.Gee.Mahendran, Linda Arsenio seen doing cameos in Vijay’s Sachien and Kabul Express in Hindi.

He will be making a big entry into film production in the near future.
