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.

Bullet Prakash Kannada Actor

Bullet Prakash

Normally movie comedians can boast of a higher number of movies than actors doing lead roles. This is simply because they can fit into a larger number of movies, a comedian having almost become a staple diet for movie goers. Even allowing for that bonus, the leading comedian of Kannada films, Bullet Prakash perhaps has had an unbelievingly prolific run, so much so, that his fans love to watch just the videos of his comic scenes over and over again. In fact even his screen name has a touch of funniness about it – although his real name is Prakash, the “Bullet” got added to it due to his fondness for his Royal Enfield Bullet motor bike which is his constant companion. This chubby faced 39 year old comedian, whose very facial expressions evoke laughter amongst his numerous fans, has so far clocked over 300 films in all, which also include a few in Telegu. In a career spanning 15 years it is no small feat to have acted on an average in more than 20 films per year. While the prefix “bullet” must have obviously brought him much luck in his career, the Bullet has also been the cause of a major mishap in his career. During the shooting of a bike stunt scene in the film “Bhujanga”, Bullet Prakash and lead actor Prajwal Devraj were both badly injured when trying out the stunt without dummies. In his own words, Prakash had declared that it could have been fatal, with the bike along with the lead actor falling on top of him. He felt it was really a providential escape and sheer good luck for him. This incident apart, Prakash has somehow always been in the news for something or the other, even getting embroiled in controversies, like the time he faced the ire of certain sections in Tamilnadu, trying to do a thinly veiled caricature of DMK leader Karunannidhi, in the 2012 Kannada film “Nimbe Huli”. Although he had nothing to do with politics in Tamilnadu, he did start dabbling in the politics of his own state Karnataka by first trying to enter municipal elections as a JDU(S) candidate, but later on joining the BJP, with which his mother is closely associated. While it would be difficult to talk about all his 300 plus movies, the ones which have been most popular include the 2008 released comedy romance “Mast Maja Maadi” and the 2010 out and comedy film “Aithalakkadi” with Prakash in one of the leading roles. “Mallikarjuna” in 2011 and more recently “Aryan” in 2014 are two of his other movies which need mention. His appearance on Kannada TV has also not been without a bit of sensation, as he joined the reality television show, “Big Bos” not as a regular participant but as a guest only.


Tennis Krishna

Tennis Krishna was born on 15th November 1949 near the Bangalore district of Karnataka. His peculiar surname- ‘Tennis’ was attributed to him since before he became an actor, Krishna was a professional Tennis coach, teaching amateurs and schoolchildren, the basics of Tennis. As there were a lot of actors in the Kannada film industry under the name ‘Krishna’, production controllers and filmmakers began referring to him as Tennis Krishna and hence, the name stuck and it gave him such an amount of exposure that he chose Tennis as his official surname to refer to himself in the film industry. Krishna was always passionate about his acting, and his interests are evident from the fact that he was a dedicated performer in various dramas, troupes, and theaters. It took him a lot of struggle and hard work to reach the coveted position of a film actor. His first film was released in 1990, named ‘Raja Kempu Roja’ –which was an action- thriller film, in which Tennis Krishna performed a comedy character, and this worked both to his advantage and disadvantage. One outcome of his choice of roles was that he got typecasted as a comedy actor, and it was hard for him to find other roles. But on the upside, Krishna gets a record for acting with the famous comedy actress Rekha Das in a total of ninety-nine movies! In 1992, He shared the screen with the legendary actor Dr. Rajkumar in the film ‘Jeevanachaitra’. ‘Appa Nanjappa Maga Gunjappa’ was the first film in which he was featured as the lead actor. All his movies were made in the Kannada language. Until now, Tennis Krishna has acted in a whopping amount of three hundred and fifty films and apart from acting, he has also worked in several other fields of movie making, and he even performed as a singer in many movies, the most popular among which is ‘Veera Madakari’ in 2009.
