Shaman Minthru is a Tamil actor, producer, and cinematographer. He ventured into the movie industry with Ethri En 3, a Tamil thriller, where he handled the cinematography for the first time. Later in 2019, he made his acting debut in Thorati, a romantic drama movie directed by Marimuthu, highlighting the rural and rustic lifestyle of a shepherd, where he bagged the lead role alongside actor Sathya Kala.

He also bore the production cost of the movie. Born in Thuckalay, which is a town in the Kanyakumari district of Tamil Nadu, Mithru admittedly had a love for good cinemas since his childhood. He believes in the execution of poignant films and claims his becoming an actor had more to do with luck than anything else.
