Munishkanth Ramdoss is an Indian film actor, who has appeared in Tamil language films. He has acted in films including Mundasupatti (2014) and 10 Endrathukulla (2015) and many more.

Career[edit]

Ramdoss came to Chennai in 2002, hoping to get a breakthrough as an actor in films and worked for several years as a junior artiste. Unable to get an immediate breakthrough, he moved to Malaysia for two years to work as a goldsmith before returning to Chennai and often slept homeless at Vadapalani temple. He became involved in short films, often portraying characters in the Naalaya Iyakkunar show on Kalaignar TV, and featured in Ram's original award-winning short film titled Mundasupatti by dubbing for the character of the aspiring actor, Munishkanth, at the insistence of his friend Kaali Venkat.[1]

He continued on the fringe of the film industry, appearing in small roles in Mani Ratnam's Kadal (2013) and C. V. Kumar's Soodhu Kavvum (2013) and Pizza 2: Villa (2013), before being given the chance to portray Munishkanth in Ram's feature film debut Mundasupatti (2014). The film became a critical and commercial success, with Ramdoss portrayal being highly acclaimed by critics.[2][3] He has since been popularly known as "Munishkanth".[4] He has since worked on films including 10 Endrathukulla (2015), Pasanga 2 (2015) and Maragadha Naanayam (2017).
