Those were the days, when we had double and triple roles played by our lead stars, as if just a single role is not enough to prove their merit onscreen. Increasingly, double roles are becoming a rarity in Tamil cinema, let alone triples. Here is a look at the triple roles that rocked in the past.

Rajinikanth: Moondru Mugham proved Rajini's multifaceted acting skills and solidified his standing in Tamil cinema. His three roles had three shades and he brought all the nuances of these different roles to life with his prowess.

Kamal: Kamal's versatility needs no introduction. Although he has played myriad roles in the past, Apoorva Sahodarargal's triple roles are shining diamonds in his already crowded crown.

Ajith: Ajith's acting skills came to the fore as soon as Varalaru came out. He showed he's capable of playing the three roles of father and sons with elan.

Sathyaraj: Sathyaraj is not new to double roles but triple? He sweat it out in Villathi Villan with amusing results.

Vijayakanth: Captain's Simmasanam showed us how talent grows gracefully with age.
