Veteran supporting actor Sampath Ram, known more for his villain roles in K’town, has finally got a deserving break after his recent stint as a corrupt cop who turns a new leaf in Vijay Antony’s Thimiru Pudichavan.

I have been getting accolades for my performance,” Sampath says.
The lanky actor has bagged a full-length baddie role post TP. “Yes I am doing a movie Thatrom Thookarom where I essay the main villain. I am also part of
