Salim Kumar had demonstrated his powerful acting talents in two recent films- Achchan Urangaatha Veedu and Vaastavam.
When director Padhmakumar saw his performance in Vaastavam, he was convinced that the actor has immense potentials to break free from his comedian image and get into some serious roles. Now, Salim Kumar has a big confusion. For the time being, the actor isn't complaining about not being able to exploit his talents fully. But it wouldn't be long before he appears in a few more roles that will make the audience sit up and notice him as an actor.
Jagadhi Shreekumar too is one such extremely gifted actor who has only now begun to exploit other avenues of acting instead of simply sticking to comedy roles.
