Once you become an actor and decide upon proving yourself as a true performer then you must be prepared to mould yourself as per the role requirement. There are few directors who don't compromise on that and very few actors in Indian cinema actually do that.
The list starts with Universal Star Kamal Haasan followed by Bollywood's Mr Perfectionist Aamir Khan and Chiyaan Vikram. At one point or the other in their career, they have gone extremely lean and slim. Even the raw hunk Randeep Hooda has done that now for his new film.
Coming back to the south, after Kamal and Vikram another name is joining that list and it is none other than the sharp eyed Karthi. Reports say he is going to do a film with the maverick Mani Ratnam and as part of that he would go through a total makeover shrinking his size.
