A superstar is expected to pair up with the “talk of the town” heroines. And the expectation does not stop with that – fans also want to see a superstar in the company of fresh and successful comedians.
That is the reason Shankar has taken upcoming comedian Santhanam in Enthiran (also referred to as Endhiran and formerly titled Robot). Famous for his stint with a popular comedy show on a TV channel, Santhanam has been able to adapt to the silver screen pretty well. And that is the reason he has gained so much fame and a call to work in a Rajinikanth film too!
After exhibiting his brand of humour in Sachein, Vallavan, Kireedam, etc., Santhanam has already entered the realm of famous Kollywood comedians. But working with Rajinikanth is like the pinnacle of his career and should give him super status, such is Rajni’s charisma. One recollects how working with Rajinikanth revived comedian Senthil’s career and the world of good it did to Rajesh Kanna. Even Meena and Nayantara saw their career paths zoom upwards after they acted with Rajni.
