Robo Shankar Tamil Actor

Robo Shankar

Robo Shankar is an upcoming comedian artiste in the Tamil cinema who was noticed as a mimicry artist in ‘’Rowtrhiram’’, that released in 2011. But while editing the movie, his role was cut fully, and the actor could not get any recognition.  As a comedian, he works very hard on the scripts and found that needed updating with the trending talks of today’s youth has become very necessary to understand the pulse of the audience to pull them to the screen. In order to be a successful comedian, he feels, one artist has to update himself with trending talks of youths witnessed in college and even schools.  The actor feels that today’s audiences are smart enough and it is harder to make them laugh in theatre. Basically, the actor analyses what whatever today’s youth wants, he perfects his role in that manner. After his comedy scenes were cut in ‘Rowtrhiram’, he got a real break in Gokul’s “Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara’’ (2013) as Pasupathi's henchman. Post ‘Idharkuthaane Aasaipattai Balakumara’, Balaji Mohan offered actor Ravi Mohan a big role in’ Vaayai Moodi Pesavum’.  He also played a drunkard role in ‘Vaayai Moodi Pesavum’ (2014) which was liked by audiences. Later on, he got an offer in ‘Maari’ with Dhanush where he gets all the freedom to try anything new on the spot. It is said that Maari has changed his life entirely. This movie has given him the perfect break and many people have started recognizing his talent after ‘Maari’.  Dhanush had helped this talented guy to come up in his life (cinema). Dhanush used to praise this new comer and admired him for his spontaneity in the sets. That is why this actor always wants to see himself as a comedian who would entertain people to the core and even he wants to see that people smile and get entertained.  The film Maari also helped him to develop friendship with Dhanush. He expects his role in Vijay’s latest flick “Puli” will get notices as this film will be a complete family entertainer. He says that he has not played any such character like what he played in Puli till date and children will enjoy his role in screen. The actor is also a huge fan of Vijay. He feels that Vijay has a very stylish smile. This comedian has also had some hit movies in 2015, such as ‘Maya’, ‘Strawbeery’, ‘Yatchan’ and ‘Trisha Illana Nayanthara’.
