He currently holds the Guinness World Record for the most screen credits for a living actor.[2] He was honoured with the Padma Shri, for his contribution to Indian cinema in 2009.[3] Brahmanandam is considered one of the most versatile Indian comic actors, noted particularly for his comic expressions.[4][5][6][7] Brahmanandam was part of the television quiz show Brahmi 1 million Show on iNews.

Awards[edit]

Padma Shri title use[edit]

As per a petition filed by BJP Party Leader N. Indrasena Reddy, Brahmanandam was found 'misusing' the Padma Shri title in recently released film 'Denikaina Ready'. The court motioned in favor of the petitioner and on 23 December 2013 announced quoting Article 18 (1) of the Constitution, that the national award did not amount to a "title" and should not be used as a suffix or prefix and in case of non-compliance, the defaulter forfeit the award.[12][13] However, Brahmanandam has challenged the orders of High Court in the apex court. Subsequently, the Supreme court of India, has ordered him to file an affidavit that he will not misuse the title elsewhere, and ordered for further hearing on 17 April 2014.[14]
