—Aadhi on the film, Mirugam
After completing BE in Computer Science, Aadhi had applied for pilot training as he was interested in touring the world. While he was waiting to hear from them, he enrolled for Silambam classes under Pandian master where stars such as Suriya and Karthi used to come.
One day, director Samy who came to see Suriya, spotted him. The director was planning his next project after Uyir. He came to Aadhi's home to give the script of Mirugam. Aadhi instantly accepted the offer as he was desperate for a film offer.
Aadi made his lead debut in the Tamil film Mirugam (2007), which upon release received critical acclaim from critics and audiences. In 2009, he starred in the supernatural thriller Eeram, that also fetched a positive response from critics and was a sleeper hit. In 2010, he had two releases, Ayyanar and Aadu Puli, which were commercial films and were average grossers, building his commercial value well despite the negative reviews. His next film Aravaan released on 2 March 2012 to mixed reviews from critics. In 2016, he played a powerful antagonist in Allu Arjun's Sarrainodu.
In 2017, he starred in the thriller Maragadha Naanayam and the romantic film Ninnu Kori. His portrayal as Arun in the latter received acclaim. His performance in Sukumar’s Rangasthalam received critical acclaim.
