The 1980s era of Tamil cinema introduced us to comedic gems like Senthil, Goundamani, and Janagaraj – and their humour still brings smiles to fans till date.

Renowned for his distinct dialogue delivery and infectious laughter, Janagaraj garnered a huge followers base, and his journey began as an assistant director under filmmaker Bharathiraja, eventually transitioning to the screen with a notable role in the film Kizhake Pogum Rail.

While Janagaraj's comedic prowess earned him acclaim, he took a hiatus from the limelight, prompting speculation about his whereabouts, including rumours of a move to America. However, he resurfaced in Vijay Sethupathi's acclaimed film "96," dispelling the rumors and reaffirming his presence in the industry. Most recently, Janagaraj delighted fans with his role in the short film "Thatha."

A recent photo of the actor has sparked widespread attention online, with fans astounded by his transformation, yet his enduring talent remains evident in his latest project. Produced by Impress Films, renowned for their works like "Chocolate" and "Kolai Vilaiyum Nilam," "Thatha" explores the timeless bond between a grandfather and grandson.

Directed by Naresh, the film boasts cinematography by Vinod and marks the musical debut of Ameena Rafeeq, A.R. Rahman's niece, as the music director. "Thatha" is now available on the OTT platform Shortflix, offering audiences a poignant narrative that celebrates the essence of familial relationships.
