Famous actor Prabhu, son of legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan, will be conferred with an honorary doctorate by Sathyabama University for his valuable contribution in the field of art and cinema.
The function is scheduled to take place on May 12 at Satyabama University campus.
Prabhu who made his debut with Sangili in the year 1982, has acted in over 200 films inclusive of Tamil and Telugu films. After being hero in over a 100 films, Prabhu now plays character roles with panache.
Severe competition at home notwithstanding (Dad Ganesan was still very active on screen then), Prabhu went on to complete around 150 films as hero! Some of them — such as Chinna Thambi, and Manasukkul Mathaapu — had landmark performances from the actor. Directed by P. Vasu, the film was a runaway hit.
Yet the veteran has his plate full — Shakthi (Telugu film), Sankarankoil, Arasa Kattalai, Vidathey Pidi to name a few.
