An artist untouched by money and glamour. In a field where one word of ten is a falsehood, this man practices truth sincerely. In an age infected by the diseases of cinema, tv and vain art, he follows his illustrious teacher keerappappampadi kuppan and honours his memory by preserving that heritage.
He found in art what he lost in his youth. He has to be credited with discovering the distinguished genius of kombadipatti raju and also kanaku, a transgender whose life he almost redeemed through koothu.
Even though he is known for acting the roles of duryodhanan, mayil raavanan , arjunan etc, his determination to see through his performance without a glitch and his unflinching honesty that can never be questioned in the face of the lure from money are what makes him a league apart in the practice of koothu.
