Bobby Simha

The transformation of Bobby Jayasimha of remote Kodaikanal to Bobby Simha of the Chennai film industry has not been without the inevitable twists and turns that normally affect those striving to enter films from humbler backgrounds. While still in college he was duped by some people who offered him roles in TV serials only to find that it was a hoax. While this was a setback of sorts, it did help him complete his studies in college and also strengthened his resolve to join films. Even after moving to Chennai, however, he had to wait for his dreams to come true, working in the meantime on various odd jobs to meet both end meet. His search ended when he met a couple of short film makers, who detecting the potential in Simha, took him on board and ended up with two fine short films, “Pizza” and “Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi”, both of them not only received high ratings from critics but also made the right moves at the box office. However, what really set him off on his subsequent tough guy image, whether as a gangster or a plain villain or even as a hard talking cop, was the film ” Soodhu Kavvum” where he portrayed the role of a kidnapper.  His landmark achievement in this genre was, however, in the 2014 film “Jigarthanda”. Critical responses apart, he also received national recognition through the “National Film Award” for the “Best Supporting Actor”. His performance also saw a sudden steep rise in his fan following, making him almost into a cult figure thereafter. His subsequent film was the Malayalam movie “Beware of Dogs”, but in his next Tamil film “Aadama Jaichomada” he showed once again, shades of his tough guy image, but in this case it was through the role of a  nonsense cop, who exhibits traces of comic variations too. The popularity and acclaim that he has received in his three years of acting career spanning from 2012 to 2015 with sixteen Tamil films, three Malayalam films and one Telugu film, clearly makes him one of the busiest actors currently. The awards and nominations that he has received in this short time also mark him out as a one who should have greater laurels coming his way.    Another Version of This Bio:  Jayasimha is the original name of the south Indian actor Bobby Simha. Bobby was born in Kodaikanal. He studied at Pioneer College in Coimbatore. When the program “Naalaya Natchathiram” was organized in Coimbatore in 2005, he participated in that. Sundar C was one of the chief guests in that show, who was adored by his acting and suggested Bobby Simha to act in the cinemas. During his graduation, he was also offered a chance to act in serials.  After completing his graduation, he immediately started to Chennai to seek chances to act in the films. He did not get a single chance to act. He worked as a Marketing Consultant and an Insurance Agent to run his days in Chennai. When he got introduced to a film maker Karthik Subburaj, he was given a chance to act in “Pizza”. It was the debut movie for Karthik Subburaj too. Then he also acted in Balaji Mohan’s directorial debut “Kadhalil Sodhappuvadhu Yeppadi”. He is very well known to the people through the movie “Soodhu Kavvum”, which had Vijay Sethupathy and Ashok Selvan. It was a super hit movie and after this movie, there are many movies coming at the doorsteps of Bobby Simha. The Tamil- Malayalam bilingual movie “Neram” and “Jigarthanda” were the movies, which exposed the acting skills of Bobby Simha. He was lauded well for his negative roles in these movies by the critics as well as the audiences. Jigarthanda was directed by Karthik Subburaj in a Madurai base. Bobby Simha acted as a local gang leader. He was honored with the National Award for the “Best Supporting Actor” category for the movie “Jigarthanda”.
