Tamil Hero Santhanam Arrives in T-town

After popular Tamil stars like Vijay Antony and Siva Karthikeyan tasting success in the two Telugu states, it is now the turn of another Tamil hero Santhanam to arrive in Tollywood. His recent horror comedy ‘DD Returns’ which rocked Tamil Nadu box office, is being dubbed into Telugu as 'Bhootala Bungala'.

“I want my laugh-riots to be stress busters. People can enjoy this movie laughing till the end, leaving behind their worries for some time,” says star-comedian-turned hero, who claims that most of the films are turning into pan-India these days.

“Actors from different languages are working in Tamil and Telugu films and blurring the language and regional barriers. I hope my upcoming rib-tickler will enthrall Telugu viewers too,” he adds.

No doubt, young generation Tamil stars are slowly making inroads in the two Telugu states since it expands their market beyond Tamil Nadu. “Telugu audiences always patronize dubbed Tamil movies with novel content. Hence, Tamil actors are also pocketing a good chunk of money,” says a source.

It remains to be seen whether Santhanam will be able to deliver box office success like his colleagues from Kollywood.
