Sandalwood actor Ganesh, the name brings to mind the days of popular TV show Comedy Time which was hosted by him. Ganesh is one actor who climbed one stair at a time to reach the pinnacle of success in his career. From being a talk show to playing a villain in his debut and then going on to become a lead actor, Ganesh has come a long way and proved his mettle as an actor. With his work, Ganesh has carved a niche for himself in the industry. He is not only one of the bankable stars for Kannada producers but also one of the highest paid actors. A winner of filmfare awards, Ganesh became a household name after his blockbuster movie Mungaru Male.
With a Nepali roots (his father is a Nepali), little did people expect him to become a star in Sandalwood. But Ganesh did all that and how! The actor's performance in Mungaru Male made people sit up and take notice. The movie had the longest run in theatres (865 days) and created a record of sorts. Mungaru Male is also believed to have raked in at least 75 crores at the box office.
The film not only became a hit among masses and drew the audience to single screen theatres, Ganesh's Mungaru Male was also a crowd puller in multiplexes which made it a unique movie. Thanks to the massive success of the movie not only did Ganesh become a sensational star overnight but he even earned himself the title Golden Star owing to his super success. The sequel to the movie too did well.
Some of his must watch movies other than Mungaru Male include Maleyali Jotheyali, Chellata, Hudugata, 99 and Aramane.
The actor is turning a year older today and the first look from his upcoming movie with Suni is all set to be released sometime today. Here's wishing Kannada Golden Star Ganesh a very happy birthday.
The film was also remade in Telugu titled Vaana.
