Mayilsamy (born October 2, 1965) is an Indian Tamil comedian actor who prominently plays supporting roles. Appearing in many Tamil films, he is also a regular guest judge on Asathapovathu Yaaru on Sun TV in Chennai. He is most probably best known for his performances in Tamil films such as Duet, Dhool, Ghilli, Kangalal Kaidhu Sei, Devathayai Kanden, Rendu and Thiruvilaiyaadal Aarambam.

Career[edit]

Mayilswamy made his acting debut after being spotted in the "Sirrippu Isai" popular comedy troupe - which has proved the breeding ground for many other successful comedians. He collaborated with Lakshman (of Lakshman Shruti fame) for successful mimicry releases, namely "Sirippo Sirippu", "Sirippo Super Sirippu" and "Meendum Sirippo Sirippu". He also made his film debut at a very young age of 20- in the film Kanni Rasi in 1985. Since then he has come a long way playing prominent supporting roles in films such as Apoorva Sagodharargal, Sivalingam, and Villadhi Villain to name a few. At time of writing he has acted in over 100 Tamil films in a variety of roles. And from the 2000s he got particular recognition being a popular sidekick to Tamil comedian Vivek in films such as Dhool, Kanden Seethaiyai and Pennin Manathai Thottu.

He also hosted comedy time from 2002-2004 on Sun TV and received Best Host in 2003 Sun TV Telly Awards.[1]

Personal life[edit]

In October 2009, Mayilswamy announced that his son Arumainayagam was ready to act in films, and gave him the stagename of Anbu.[2] Anbu was set to make his debut in 2011 with Rasu Madhuravan's Parthom Pazhaginom opposite Joshna Fernando, but the film was shelved soon after the launch.[3] Anbu later began working on a film titled Andha 60 Naatkal by Rajasekhar in late 2015, a fantasy comedy co-starring Chandrika, but the film eventually did not release.[4] Likewise, another cancelled venture in 2015 was Johnson's Kokku, in which Anbu was supposed to star alongside Papri Ghosh.[5] In 2017, he attempted to make acting debuts through Vedhamani's Thiripuram alongside Brindha and Niharika, and Oru Bommalattam Nadakuthu co-starring Surabhi Tiwari and Gosha, but both films did not progress.[6][7] In 2018, Anbu tried again and began work on Alti directed by M. F. Hussain, appearing alongside Manisha Jith, and on Chidambaram Railway Gate opposite Neeraja.[8][9]
