One would be obviously surprised when they come across the afore-mentioned headline. Every mom likes to see her son growing and achiveing new feats in his life. But Santhanam's mother stands different. Wondering why? She fears that her son might end up being a loser and eventually running short of offers.
Santhanam is turning hero with Vallavanuku Pullum Aayudham. After acting in comedian roles for last couple of years, he is finally playing the lead role in the remake of Telugu superhit film Maryada Ramanna.
According to Santhanam, his mother is worried that her son might not get offers if his Vallavanuku Pullum Aayudham fails at Box Office. As a hero, he might get one film in a year. Whereas, he acts in dozens of films as a comedian.
"My mother is worried that I may not get films if this film bombs at the Box Office. All these years she never got worried because she knew that as a comedian, I'll always have a few films in hand and keep myself busy. But she feels as a hero I may get only one film a year," Santhanam told IANS.
On asking about his decision to turn hero, Santhanam claimed that he has been getting offers to turn hero for quite some time. But he turned down many because it was not exciting offers. But Vallavanuku Pullum Aayudham script impressed him and he felt that it is tailor-made for him.
