Tamil actor Pasupathy seems to be all happy after his second Malayalam movie Vairam started running packed houses across Kerala. The actor has said that he is least interested in star status or star value. He wants to be a good actor and his films should run on merits.
Pasupathy, who debuted with a cameo in Malayalam film Big B that had Mammootty in lead role, was recently in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday to promote the film Vairam. Addressing the media, the actor said, "I am least interested in star status or star value. My only objective is to be a good actor and my films should run onm erits, not on star value."
The Tamil actor further said that compared to Tamil, Malayalam films certainly have a better quality when it comes to the script. He added that but the remuneration would be better in Tamil because it has a wider audience and the budgets of Tamil films are bigger.
