Comedian Santhanam's career graph is on a high and his recent film Endrendrum Punnagai, and Ithu Kathirvelan Kadhal are just going to move it upwards. This former small screen comedian is renowned for his cheeky one-liners rather than slap stick comedy. One major criticism posed on him is about excessive use of double entendres. Recently a particular dialogue he spoke towards a woman character in the film Endrendrum Punnagai faced the ire of Feminist organizations and it had to be replaced with some other verse.
Family audiences as well as critics who appreciate Santhanam's wit and sense of humour have always wanted him to avoid crass dialogues. Santhanam's Mother is one who keeps on insisting her son to avoid using such dialogues to make fun. Sources close to the comedian say that Santhanam has promised to his mother that he will never use double meaning dialogues in his films hereafter.
One can be sure to Santhanam's fan base among family audience increase multifold if he keeps up the promise made to his mother.
