Stills from Arasu, Gambeeram and Kanchana respectively

Sarathkumar, the “Supreme star” of Tamil cinema has been out of the limelight in the past few years. The people of South know him not only as a film star, but as a politician and a journalist too. He is one of the first A-lister in Kollywood to play a transgender in Muni 2: Kanchana.

For the last few years he has selected supporting roles such as Jaya Janaki Nayaka and Bharat Ane Nenu. But before that there was a phase where his stardom was only rivalled by Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan. He was loved by family audiences for his mature roles and the youth for his cop roles. Here are a few films of Sarathkumar you could enjoy on his birthday:

1
Nattamai
