image Shaam was a model in Bangalore, and aspired to be in movies one day. As fate would have it, his first tryst with cinema was in Kushi, where he played a small role as Vijay’s friend. He soon burst into Kollywood with 12B, directed by late Jeeva. He then starred in several films, including Ullam Ketkume, Iyarkai, Thoondil and Inba.

Shaam’s performance in his debut Telugu flick Kick was widely appreciated and now the actor is back in Kollywood with a bang in Thillalangadi, remake of Kick.“When people saw the tough guy in Thillalangadi, they instantly asked where was this Shaam all these days? So, from now, I want to focus more on action. But that doesn’t mean I won’t take up romantic roles. If an interesting script like that of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa comes up, why not?” the actor said.

“Tamil people want their heroes to be tough. And since I have already played chocolate boy roles, I did not want to get stuck with that particular image. I thought it would be a good idea to attempt another genre and prove that I am a versatile actor too,” he added.

“Most films in the recent times are multi-starrers. Instead of the usual song and dance routine and one guy bashing up a bunch of goons, it’s quite different to do a role in which you appear for just five scenes. But solo projects do matter a lot for the image of an actor.
