Our South Indian stars always thrive to do better in their films and make sure their fans are happy with the what they get to watch. Be it as a cop, armed force officer or an intelligence officer, our stars have tried all the roles and been very successful in that. Top Telugu actors like Venkatesh and Nagarjuna have done many films where they sported the khakhi and looked stunning in those roles. Venkatesh in Gharshana and Nagarjuna in Sivamani, particularly, looked perfect as a cop. In Tamil, top stars like Ajith, Suriya and Vijay have done these kinds of characters too and pulled it off ecstatically.
Suriya as a police officer in Singam franchise was a sensation and looked flawless. Suriya worked hard to get into the required shape of a police officer. Suriya is known to be a fitness freak, and took a bit more care while working on all the Singham parts.
Ajith Kumar as ACP Sathyadev in Yennai Arindhaal looked vibrant and dynamic. Gautham Menon, the director of Yennai Arindhaal, is known to make films based on lives of police officers. Gautham Menon’s previous films, Kaakha Kaakha, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu and Yennai Arindhaal are testimonial to his police trilogy. Ajith’s look in Yennai Arindhaal raised the standards in terms of how a cop character is portrayed in South Indian Cinema.
Ilayathalapathy Vijay, too, has donned the cop character in few films, Pokkiri and Theri being couple of those. Theri, particularly, redefined Vijay’s image in Tamil cinema and his fan following went sky high post Theri. Director Atlee took special care in designing the look for Vijay in Theri and well appreciated for his attention to detail.
