You can never underestimate the commitment, dedication and attitude of Kollywood"s goal-driven Young Turks. Many have built reputations in the vast landscape of entertainment and all of them are focused on carving out niches for themselves. For Shanthanoo, after his big-time launch in Sakkarakatti, directed by Kalaipuli Thanu"s son Kalaprabhu, there have been no quick releases. Now, Pudhiya Vaarpugal, a remake of his father K. Bhagyaraj"s super-hit film with the same title, is being remade by K. Bhagyaraj and scripted by him.
Meanwhile a completely transformed Shanthanoo, who underwent a major makeover for his role in Pudhiya Vaarpugal, stole the show in the Chennai Super Kings match. He has lost about 10 kgs and wants to lose five more ASAP. This sure seems to be the beginning of a fresh trend which differs from the earlier craze of heroes to develop six-pack abs.
