Hi, my name is Kailash. I am an Indian from a Tamil speaking family, but I studied in New Delhi for five years. My aim is to change stubs into having complete information (most of these come in Tamil cinema). I also work continuously on correcting major errors in most articles, and upload rare posters of landmark films. I collect most Tamil soundtrack images of the 1970s and 1980s from here, and songbook covers (passable as posters) from here. Most often, I use this gadget known as checklinks to see whether the articles which are assessed as good and featured, are still worthy of the honour they hold. I am also a member of The 1000 Challenge for Indian Cinema, and archive references to combat link rotting using this gadget.
The secret of my success
I am often not very skilled at most things on this site, but I create new things just by copying the structure of other things and just changing the names. I could do better if I was given formal education on Wiki.

- Kalathur Kannamma - Will begin GA once there are at least 45 sources.
- Meera (1945 film)

- Nayanthara filmography - Once it is completely sourced
- Parasakthi - Can expand for potential FAC using M. S. S. Pandiyan's article.
