It's not everyday that a star from TV with humble beginnings make it big in Tamil movies. Santhanam, who is now in a very commendable position in Tamil cinema has chartered his growth by playing the second lead with his comic skills to reach where he is now. With Saguni releasing this weekend, one of his big releases of the year, we take a brief look at his career.

Santhanam burst into the scene with Simbhu's Manmadhan and their combination was a super success. Till date Santhanam is grateful for Simbhu for getting him into films and has mentioned many a times that Simbhu will always be a priority for him.

If Simbhu got him into movies, director Rajesh brought his comedic skills to the fore. Santhanam's success as a comedian is largely because of movies like SMS, Boss Engira Baskaran and OKOK.

Another successful combination Santhanam has is with Dhanush with whom he has had Pollathavan, which was considered to be a milestone in comedy.

Karthi and Santhanam's unlikely pair in Siruthai set the cash registers ringing so to say and their next combo Saguni is the most expected film in recent times.
