Stand- up comedian and actor Karthik Kumar, who was last seen in Suriya’s Pasanga 2 and is best known for sharing screen space with Nayanthara and Dhanush, has decided to stop working in feature films.
“19 Feature films later I’m finally stopping – I’m not going to seek out more work in Cinema as an actor… its time to hang those boots, for good, or for a long while… either way they gotta come off now!,” he wrote on his Facebook page.
“Being on Mani sir’s set, Discussing Art with PC sir, Arvind from KNM, Nandu from Chaurahen, Fighting for value for my character Seenu in YNM against a Dhanush, the most heartfelt selfish Uppili in PSP, negative roles in NI and EN, doing Crazy Mohan in KKM, and being in love in Veppam, and a fallible real parent in P2… i did pretty well! But I’m a failure…
I failed to see that i should have asked for more… i failed to believe in myself… i failed as a Film actor because of Me!
Love you Cinema – till (and if) we meet again,” added Karthik.
