Komal Kumar is now sandalwood’s comedy king. He has an impressing career. He has acted in over 100 films so far. He always had the passion for acting. This actor only did clean comedy film, and he refused to be a part of vulgar comedy movies. He had the habits of cutting down the vulgar dialogues even during dubbing as he is of the opinion that vulgarity never pays in the end. He became an actor by accident. His brother was a struggling actor then.
When he was a student in a law college, a person had approached him asking if he was interested in acting. But the film did not happen. He did a couple of movies and left his studies. When he realized that he could act, he had no looking back. He got an offer for five films, and in one of them, he was even a hero, with his brother, playing the supporting role. People also encouraged him as he had a photogenic face, but most of the films flopped, and he was out of any more assignment (left with no offers). It is then he took up the role of a distributor of films. He distributed about 30 films, which did not pay him much dividend; he met with a huge loss.
It was then he returned to acting once again. He was offered Rs 1,000 for his roles. Soon he got Rs 5000 for roles that he had played. To make both ends meet, he started working even in shifts. However, his luck still did not smile upon him, and he wanted to turn hero in films. His film “Garagasa” was a hit. Soon he produced films for him again where he could act as a leading champion, but that did not help him either. He even performed some villain roles, and he was successful.
Thus, he tried experimenting with various kinds of roles. Even many heroes did not act with him as he could steal the scenes from under their nose. He has performed with many leading and established actors during his time. Komal is an actor, distributor, producer and even won awards for his performances in Thangi (2003), Neenello Naanalle(2006) and Govindaya Namaha (2012), which has established himself as a bankable comedian in cinema.
