Once you earn a strong reputation as a hero or comedian or character artist or villain it becomes extremely difficult for you to change your profile and create a new image. It happens only with very few individuals who are extremely talented and can show that versatility. But there is one pattern which has always proved right.
That pattern is, comedians can never become mainstream heroes. Right from super talented performers like Sunil to big guns like Brahmanandam, they could not deliver as heroes. Despite that, there are those comedians who strongly believe they can make it work. Recently it was comedian Saptagiri who became a hero.
And now, just like how Saptagiri became a hero, Shakalaka Shankar also got into the same trip. He is all set to make his debut as a hero and there is also another interesting update. Shakalaka Shankar has removed his prefix and is arriving with his name as Shankar. It now remains to be seen how successful Shankar will be.
