Even as musicians like GV Prakash Kumar and Vijay Antony are making it big in the filed of acting, many young music directors in the industry, give you an impression that they are queuing up to become the next big thing in Kollywood.
These upcoming music directors have got the talent and looks to become the future heroes of Tamil cinema. Have a look:
Anirudh is Kollywood's special child. Hailing from a family of film personalities, he made his debut as a musician. Today, his popularity is such that any producer would be willing to bankroll a movie featuring him.
Having made many special appearances in movies, it is just a matter of time before this 27-year-old decides to make his Tamil cinema debut as a hero.
Popularly known as 'Hip Hop Tamizha', Adhi impressed one and all with his acting skills in the musical video of 'Theemai Thaan Vellum', a song from the movie Thani Oruvan.
Adhi has got the looks and talent to join the elite list of music directors, who have chosen to become actors.
I was surprised when Kuralarasan had chosen music over acting. For a lad, who hails from a family of actors, it is not difficult to become an actor himself. Don't be surprised if he decides to become one in the future.
Also, Kural knows how to face the camera as he has appeared in number of movies as a child artist.
Better known by his stage name K, this young music director turned down an offer to feature in Mysskin's Yuddham Sei, which was his debut movie as a musician.
He then went on to act in Kallappadam and had done a decent job. I wouldn't be surprised if this 29-year-old bags more such films in the future.
Leon James has just composed music for two Tamil films. But this promising musician might go on to become an actor, for he resembles Dhanush.
His upcoming projects include Veera and Kavalai Vendam.
