Perseverance pays

Perform your duty without expecting any reward. Think this concept is a little outdated and needs to be done away with? Don't! For, you too could stand to gain if you applied the wisdom of this thought in real life like Appukutty, who is today a celebrity at the national level. Says this year's National award winner for the Best Supporting Actor, “I give full credit to director Suseenthiran who gave me an opportunity to act and producer P. Madhan who made ‘Azhagarsamiyin Kuthirai.' Without them, I wouldn't be here at all.” He goes on to add, “At this time, I also need to emphasise a fact. I had faith in my skill and was willing to work hard. It is these factors that have helped me gain this recognition. I began my struggle to be part of the film industry in the year 1994, almost 18 years ago. Since then, I have persisted and it was only after ‘Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu' people began noticing me.” Well, now that he has realised his dream of making it big in cinema, what more does he intend to accomplish? Says the comedian-turned-hero, who has at least five films in his kitty including ‘Mannar,' ‘Kizhakku Purathu Veedu' and ‘Bheeman,' “I don't look at rewards. My priority is to score with my performance.”
