September 27 marks the Birthday of late actor Nagesh. Today comedy in Tamil cinema is by bunch full of comedians who try to master the art of fun making. Well those days there was this legendary comedian who was born with that very gift. Known as the "Jerry Lewis of India" he shot to fame with his Server Sundaram a film that redefined everything in his career. Directed by K.Balachander, the song "Avalukene.." was a phenomenal song that still echoes away till date.
His fan base is immense and strong, even Ulaga Nayagan Kamal is a big fan, a giant size photo of Nagesh can be found in his office. Some of the comedy snippets are evergreen and refuse to die down, no matter how many times you see that, for once the Balaya-Nagesh comedy in "Kadhalika Neram ilia" is an example.
He is also a fluent dancer and most often he outsmarts the lead hero with his dance. Acting with almost all of the lead heroes from yester year till Superstar we can proudly pronounce him as "Evergreen comedian of Indian Cinema".
