I’m looking for the name of an actor in S.Ve. Shekar’s Natakhapriya. He has a distinct voice, and features in almost all of S.Ve. Shekar’s pre-2000 dramas. Generally he plays a cameo, but very memorable ones.
Some of his most enjoyable roles are as S.Ve. Shekar’s father in Crazy Thieves in Palavakkam (“Maargazhi thingal…”), and as R.K. sir in Kaatula Mazhai. The best of course is as S.Ve.S’s grandfather in Periya Thambi, where he reels out “graamathu pazhamozhis”. Remember “thengaa parichu thenju pona dhevaaram, maangaa parikkayila…” “enna Commissioner Rajagopal aaytaara?”
If you know his real name, do let me know. Thanks.
