was once the Golden Boy of Tamil cinema but
got lost somewhere along the way. Is known to
have a faithful fan following in Malaysia and
Singapore but not many to speak of back home.
There are many who believe that he can no longer
set the box office on fire. This will be decided
when Runway and Petrol hit screens. His last
release, Thagappansaamy didn’t perform
too bad, profit wise. His experience in the
industry must stand him in good stead during
the tough times. Needs to take care of his physique.
His movies are now made within 2.5 crores and
thanks to his Malaysian and Singaporean audience;
distributors buy them for around 3 crores. He
is paid 40-50 lakhs.
Production cost of the
movie involved: 2.5 Crores
sold for: 3 Crores
Last hit: Winner
Number of years
