Anandaraj Biography

Anandaraj Education

To earn his bachelor’s degree, Anandaraj enrolled at the M.G.R. Government Film and Television Training Institute in Chennai. We don’t know much about his academic background beyond the fact that he graduated.

Anandaraj Early Life

On November 10th, 1958, Anandaraj entered this world in the Indian city of Pondicherry. He graduated with a BA in filmmaking from Chennai’s M.G.R. Government Film and Television Training Institute. Since he was a kid, he’s always enjoyed watching movies on TV.

After finishing high school, he planned on attending a film school. After completing his education, he had a difficult time finding work in the film industry. The film Oruvar Vaazhum Aalayam starred Prabhu and Sivakumar, and he played the antagonist in 1988.

Anandaraj Career

Oruvar Vaazhum Aalayam, released in 1988 and starring Prabhu and Sivakumar, was the film that gave Anandaraj his first break. P. Vasu’s breakthrough came in 1990 with the publication of En Thangachi Padichava in all four south Indian languages. Another film in which Prabhu played the hero was Suresh Krishna’s Raja Kaiya Vacha (1990), in which he also starred. However, he did collaborate with Vijayakanth on several films.

Anand Raj remarked that he made the transition from villain to hero roles because “those around you usually urge you to take the next step” when you become popular in a villain character. One of these moments was when I said yes to playing the lead. He then appeared in films like Kaaval Nilayam, Thambi Oorukku Puthusu, Government Mappillai, Pokkiri Thambi, Kizhakku Veluthathchu, David Uncle, En Rajangam, Puthiya Aatchi, and My India after Palaivana Paravaigal. The films tanked at the box office despite the fact that many notable directors provided him with intriguing scripts to adapt.

The rapid rise to stardom of Anandaraj in the 1980s led to his collaboration with action film director R. Sarathkumar in a number of films. In movies where they both appeared, Anandaraj was given more screen time than Sarathkumar received, and Sarathkumar found it difficult to maintain his prominence and was finally relegated to bit parts. He has shared the screen with such luminaries as Balakrishna (Muddula Mavayya), Vijayakanth (Pulan Visaranai), Chiranjeevi (Gang Leader), Rajinikanth (Baashha), Mammootty (Makkal Aatchi), R. Sarathkumar (Suryavamsam), and Vijay.

Anandaraj revolutionised the comedy genre in Ramkumar’s 2014 film Mundasupatti, which received rave reviews and elicited many belly laughs. Because of his original approach, Anandaraj has won over many young moviegoers. Because of his unique approach, he is a favourite of newer film directors, who cast him in offbeat roles.

Anandaraj was cast as the villain despite director Prabhu Deva’s instructions for him to keep a low profile. Before being cast in the Action Jackson films, Anandaraj spent a year dieting and exercising to slim down to Prabhu Deva’s size (2014). Upon noticing the lizard tattoo on his scalp, he knew he would have to have a new appearance before filming his role as a don.

Naanum Rowdydhaan, starring Vijay Sethupathi and Nayanthara, cast him in a starring role (2015). Anandaraj will have murky motivations and a troubled past even if he isn’t the primary antagonist. In the 2017 film Maragadha Naanayam, he portrays the role of Twinkle Ramanathan.

Many of the most recent films include Katha Nayagan (2017), Sathya (2017), and Gulaebaghavali (2018).  He’d be great as the comically villainous antagonist. Anandaraj’s performance in Jackpot earned him the 2019 Vikatan Award for Best Comedian. He has expressed his displeasure to the filmmaker over the poor treatment of his character in the 2019 film Bigil.
