STR is a prodigy. He has been acting from the time he was a kid. He was someone who knew all nuances of cinema. So it was not surprising when he made that big leap from a child actor to a hero. It was easy transition for the actor who was destined to be the next big in Kollywood. But the initial over enthusiasm meant that he began his journey as hero by imitating other actors. We grew tired. But he managed to grow out of the viral mode to do films like Kovil, Vaanam and Vinnaithandi Varuvaya.
Again there was a slump as the once enthusiastic actor didn’t turn up for shoot and did dubbing in the bathroom. Films got delayed and we had disasters like Anbanavan Adangathavan Asarathavan. Everyone said that his career was over. He had put on weight as fans yearned for the old STR.
But he’s managed to surprise us all in this lockdown. From fat to fit it’s been an inspiring journey. It is something which we all can follow – to do the impossible. Not only that. He has completed a film in this pandemic time. The teaser of Eswaran saw STR making a majestic comeback. Now we have another great news for STR fans. He is gearing up for the sequel of one of his most adorable films. It is none other than Poda Podi which released in 2012. Now the sequel is all set to start with STR as the hero. Poda Podi 2 will start during Summer 2021. Debutant Ritika Paul is his pair in the film. The film is produced by Padam Kumar. The director is yet to be announced. Will it be Vignesh Shivn. Let’s wait and watch. So it seems like there is no stopping STR now. This pandemic has brought back one of our favorite stars.
