Goundamani, who has ruled the roast for almost two decades, is back with a bang. He has made a strong comeback with three offers on hand. Among the three films that he has signed up recently, he would be essaying the lead role in two of them.
Though Goundamani has been away from films for the past few years, he is never away from the telly as sequences featuring him are being telecast almost on a 24-hour basis as television channels vie with each other in telecasting such sequences to up their TRP rating.
Veteran of more than 600 films (12 of them in lead roles), Goundamani had dominated most of those films, especially films which starred the likes of Prabhu, Sathyaraj, Karthik and Ramarajan as heroes. After Thangam which released a few years back, Goundamani has not been taking up any offers to star in films but is now back with a bang. He plays the comedian in Vaaimai which has Shanthanu in the lead.
Goundamani plays the hero in a film to be directed by an aide of Vetrimaran, a great fan of the comedian. Besides, he would also be playing the lead role in a film titled as 49-O to be directed by Arokiadass, a former aide of Gautham Vasudev Menon. Goundamani plays a farmer in the film and has a host of comedians for company in the form of Sathyan, VTV Ganesh and Somasundaram.
