The so-called ‘chemistry’ which is usually used to describe the on-screen matching of heroes and heroines would now have to be used for a very different purpose. The same ‘chemistry’ appears to have notched up a ‘perfect understanding’ between comedian Santhanam and director Rajesh.
The director has cast the comedian in lead roles, which was almost parallel to that of the hero, in all his three films as on date: Siva Manasula Sakthi, Bass Engira Baskaran and Oru Kal Oru Kannadi. All the films have turned out to be successful ventures at the box-office, making it a hat-trick of success for Rajesh. Though Jiiva, Aarya and Udhayanidhi played the heroes (respectively in that order) in these films, it was Santhanam’s presence which hugely aided those films’ success at the box-office.
It is said that Santhanam is all set to play the same ‘supporting the hero’ role in Rajesh’s 4th directorial venture titled Azhagu Raja. The fim would star Karthi in the lead. Readers might recall as to what the highly successful combination of Karthi and Santhanam did to the box-office fortunes of the film Siruthai. As such, Santhanam has also starred with Karthi in his upcoming film Saguni as well.
It doesn’t take much for anybody to figure out the amount of success the film, which has the combination of Rajesh, Karthi and Santhanam, would have at the box-office. In all porobability, the film might even go on to become the best of all the hilarious comedy films made by Rajesh!
