Top 5 actors to act in films with a disability character: Top heroes in Kollywood are taking up challenging roles and blending them. Let̵7;s take a look at 5 incredible characters played by mass heroes as people with disabilities.
Ajith – the villain: As the ‘Ultimate Action King’, Ajith enthralled fans in every film and played the dual role of Shiva and Vishnu in ‘Villain’. In this, he showed his brilliant performance in the character of Vishnu, a person with low brain development.
Not only this, whenever Ajith in the character of Shiva is caught by the police in the film, he immediately turns his face like Vishnu and starts dragging his feet and immediately transforms into his real alter-ego and shows them water.
Kamal – Apoorva Brothers: Kamal Haasan, who makes a lot of effort to look different in each of his films, played the character of a dwarf named Appu in the 1989 film Apoorva Brothagal.
In the same film, Sethupathi showed a difference by playing the height of common people in two more characters like Raja. In this film, the circus driver ‘Appu’ interacts with animals like parrots, monkeys, elephants and shows himself half-human by sitting on his knees throughout the film.
Rajinikanth – Thorn and Flower: Mullum Malarum is a superhit movie directed by Mahendran starring Rajinikanth, Patapata Jayalakshmi, Shobha and Sarathbabu. In this film, Rajini will lose one of his hands in an unexpected accident. The film showcased the superstar as a mass hero who could say ‘Bad Boy Sir Ind Kali’, as bad as he was when he had two hands.
Not only this, when he uttered this dialogue in a sad scene, many people melted. In this film, the love struggle between brother and sister was shown beautifully. Rajni’s acting in every scene was amazing. On the other hand, Rajni’s song sung for her family after losing her hand has brought the middle class youth to the fore.
Surya – Mighty: Perazhagan is a movie directed by Sasi Shankar starring both Suriya and Jyothika in dual roles. Suriya and Jyothika were the loving couple in this film who could have been immaculate with Nalam. But another pair, Suriya and Jyothika, were added as a disabled person who was not even identified.
Especially to see Koon falling as Ballu Uttam in the character of Suriya Chinna, he showed off his comedic performance in a different way. Many viewers of this film were surprised that Chinna’s character Suryava completely transformed himself into the original disabled person and performed amazingly.
Vikram- Kashi: From the 90s till now, Siyan Vikram has transformed his image into an onslaught in every film. In 2001, he played the role of a blind talented singer in the film Kaasi.
While he is supporting his family with his songs, we can see how the mild-mannered person turns aggressive due to an accident in his family. And how invisible people live their everyday life, Vikram has shown it with his best performance.
