He is reported to have said that my dad was an hotelier, he wanted me to handle his business but I wanted to be a police officer. During college days, I developed shortsight and my dreams crashed as clear eyesight was a pre-requisite to join the police. People told my mother that her son was good looking and he should try to get into films. The lecturers in college said the same and that was playing on my mind. My father was against it but my mother supported me.

He is well known for his supporting roles to actors like Sivaji Ganesan, Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan and Chiranjeevi. He refers to K. Balachander as his mentor and has acted in most of his fims.
