Karunas wowed audiences with his sensitive portrayal of a man with less-than-average looks with a beautiful wife in Dindigul Sarathy. A very simple human being in real life, Karunas is one who does not forget his roots. Introduced in Nanda by director Bala, Karunas skyrocketed to fame with his portrayal of ‘Lodukku Pandi’.
Dindigul Sarathy was sold for a whopping Rs. 10 crores within Tamil Nadu itself, a fact that speaks volumes about distributors’ faith in the comedian-turned-hero. But due to the many rumours in Kollywood that Karunas is now refusing to accept comedy roles, he has come forward to clarify his position.
The dark-skinned comedian said recently that character and comedy roles that gave life to his career will always be close to his heart. If he accepts any lead roles, those roles would have to meet the standards of Dindigul Sarathy. Karunas assured his fans and well-wishers that money or fame would never play a part in his decisions about his acting career.
