Most of the fans of ‘Mottai’ Rajendran a.k.a. ‘Naan Kadavul’ Rajendran may not be aware of how the actor lost his hair and came to be known as ‘Mottai’ Rajendran; it turns out that the actor met with an unexpected accident which took a toll on his hair!
Rajendran, whose hard features hardly resemble an actor, has been quite successful in Tamil films as a comedian. He actually started off as a stuntman and had normal hair on his head but it became a thing of a past after an accident which occurred when he was working in a Malaylam film a few years back.
As per the sequence which was being shot, Rajendran was to jump into a pool which he did without blinking his eye-lids. However, it so happened that the pool had water which had industrial waste mixed in it and remained highly polluted.
The polluted water had an immediate effect on Rajendran who lost his hair very soon. Later, he also lost the hair on his eye-brows which gave him a not-so-impressive look.
Thanks to his commitment, he could make an impact on Tamil audiences as an actor and his hairless scalp also gave him the title of ‘Mottai’ Rajendran!
