Another Bio - Information :
The love for Tamil, Tamil movies, has driven this actor and producer K Rajan to lay out the backbone for the film industry’s causes and need for a good Tamil cinema always. He always informs you what choices an actor should make? The self-goal of a trained actor like Vijay or Ajith should not imitate any character of any emotion blindly, he often asks.
Do they (new generation actors) even know what they did on screen and how they did those scenes and dialogues? Actor Rajan thinks an actor’s dialogues or scenes must aim at character building and that makes one a great actor. Acting technique has changed a lot over the years.
Once upon a time, there used to be
Gemini Ganesan, MGR, and
Sivaji Ganesan and, later, there were generations like Jai Shankar, Ravi Shankar, Ravi Chandran,
AVM Rajan. That was a golden era when there were good producers and directors.
Nowadays even TV series are not worth watching. His advice to young generation actors, when they play a character in TV or film, they should know their character as well as they should know even themselves well so that they know how to exist and live for Cinema and TV. The veteran actor K Rajan often feels that as an actor one has to plant those memories and backstory always.
That is why Sivaji Ganesan or MGR could transform into a character, to be truthfully and emotionally connected to the betterment of the society and people. He tells us that great acting is often in the eye of the beholder, but today’s audiences see none of this ideologies on screen or even TV.
The purpose of Film Industry is to produce films with better scripts, performances, and dialogues. Rajan is quite surprised that today’s actors have tricks to help them and that is why they utter dialogues that have double meanings too.
Filmmakers should also have a basic instinct to choose good scripts and dialogues that transform our society’s thoughts and feelings. Rajan is also a big critic of today’s actors who charge crores and crores of rupees but that affects our society.
He believes today’s actors should play a truthful character and not a cliché, a caricature who barely resembles the human being. K Rajan who has over five decades experience in film acting, wonders why there is no new faces in the industry. He is an active member of Tamil Nadigar Sangam.
This versatile actor was born on he was 25 February 1941. The actor was highly appreciated for his screenplay in movies like ‘Namma Ooru Mariamma’, and ‘Thangamana Thangachi’. Both these movies were produced under the banner of Ganesh Cine Arts and the music was composed by Shankar Ganesh.
He directed two popular movies 'Unarchigal’ and 'Namma Oru Ellaiamman'. He was seen as supporting actor in famous movies like 'Kabadi Kabadi ' and Naama Our Ellaiamman'.
Film producer Rajan was vice president for Tamil Film Producers Council (2002-04). K Rajan even now involves himself with the Producer Council and feels to voice his support for the technicians. We would often find him to protest on socio-political issues too. Of late, we hear that he has donated a lump sum amount to set up the Tamil Chair at Harvard University.
