- Actor Karunas, typecast as comedian, has freed himself of this tag and acted as hero in Thindukal Sarathi and Ambasamudram Ambani. Ragalapuram, Chandamama and Machan have him in the lead.
Briefing mediapersons about 'Machan', Karunas said his desire was to act as hero in five more films. Notwithstanding his desire, he would not be averse to accepting comedy roles. Even though he would appear in a single scene, he would think of how best he could make the viewers laugh. He cited the film 'Yaaradi Nee Mohini' and said he came in a cameo and still his comedy was talked about. He wanted to do all types of characters and stand out
'Machan' features Karunas and Sheryl Brindo as husband and wife. Giving them support are Vivek, Ramesh Arvind, Kovai Sarla and Mayilsamy. Director Shakthi Chidambaram is doing a small role for the first time. K. Balamurugan and Mani produce it for R.K. Studios.
The story is about friendship. Karunas' character is named 'All-in-All Azhaguraja'. Shakthi Chidambaram plays 'Lollu Pandi'.
Karunas approached Vivek and told him he should do an important character for which he was best suited. That Vivek immediately accepted the role showed he is a man of dignity, Karunas said.
