Santhanam’s friend balances passion and professionPublished: September 22, 2015
Remember Dr.Sethu, one of the lead actors of ‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya‘. He is now ready with his next release ‘Vaaliba Raaja‘.
The trained doctor, who is treading the fine line between passion and duty, says “I consider myself incredibly lucky to be given the opportunity to contribute to the holistic happiness of people, one by entertaining them and the other by helping build confidence through my medical practice”.
On how he was attracted towards cinema, he says, “as a young child growing up in Tamilnadu at many of life crucial junctures in my life I have looked up to and learned from icons like MGR, Sivaji, Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan and one thing that has remained with me is the responsibility that these greats have towards the people. Thus, my medical education combined with my overwhelming love for cinema helps me balance my responsibility as an entertainer and adding smiles through my cosmetology expertise.”
Building on his rapport with Santhanam, Dr Sethu once again teams with the rib tickling Santhanam and Visaka Singh in ‘Vaaliba Raja’. Sethu says “while there is a lot speculation about me quitting movies I would like to say that in a place like India where multitasking is the mantra. I believe my sincere passion and with the love from the Tamil audience, I will be able to be a part of good cinema in more ways than one.”
