An actor is someone who isn’t just wearing the grease paint, but there happens to be a much more emotional and intellectual panoramas that make them more enhanced. In fact, they get so much acquainted with the films that they can easily judge whether a particular script would get them under spotlights or wither away their feathers to failure. Especially, when it comes to Tamil cinema, we have always found our very own actors are so much encompassed with the esthetical sense of writing the translating words into celluloid. With National award winning actor Dhanush making her debut directorial with the film Pa. Pandi, we bring you a list of fantabulous actors and their successful maiden directorial films.

Kamal Haasan – Chachi 420/ Hey Ram
