Exclusive interview with actor thyagu

Thyagu (born 2 February 1958) is a Tamil film actor who has appeared in comedy roles. He has played various kind of roles in the Tamil film industry. He is the grandson of violinist Kumbakonam Rajamanickam Pillai.



Beginning as a protagonist, Thyagu played roles in Oru Thalai Ragam and Palaivana Solai, before playing antagonistic roles in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In the 2000s, he often formed an association with Vadivelu and would appear in a few scenes in films he had signed for, occasionally portraying comedy roles. His recent work includes roles in Kuselan as well as a politician in the Singam series.

In 2011, Thyagu quit the DMK political party, whom he had been associated with for twenty-eight years. Soon after his split, he lamented the leader Karunanidhi's broken promise of honouring Thyagu's grandfather with a postage stamp as a reason of his departure.
