Two is a couple, three is a crowd. Before tasting success, these Tamil actors were just one in the crowd. Non-descript and uncredited.

1. Trisha in Jodi
Been there, done that.
Standing behind your pretty friend (Heroine- Simran), watching the popular guy (Hero – Prashanth) making googly eyes at her. Trisha does look bored and mildly annoyed just like you.
2. Siddharth in Kannathil Muthamittal
Being an Assistant director is tough, you are made to do everything. But sometimes it’s an audition for your breakout role.
3. AndreaJeremiah in Kanda naal muthal
I know almost no one waits in the theatre for the credits to roll. If you did, you would have caught her pretty face on screen a lot sooner.
4. Mirchi Shiva in 12 B
Hugely popular for his sarcastic straight-faced humour, Shiva is just one of the guys in Shaam’s office. Nothing hot here machi.
5. Vimal in Gilli
Before he became the Kalavani, he was one of Vijay’s Kabaddi buddies
6. Ajith’s first screen appearance
This was hardest for me to believe. Thala in school boy’s uniform, hair cut short, wooing his classmate. Must watch.
A movie cliché. Hero or heroine goes everywhere – temple, mall, park, beach… with a gang. Another friend in the back ground, Shaam.
8. Karthi in Ayutha Ezhuthu
Points if you can spot Karthi. Have you found him yet? If not, he is the guy sitting next to Siddharth on the cot. Can’t believe? Me too.
9. R Madhavan in Is Raat Ki Subah Nahi
Just one question. Why Maddy Why??
10. Gautham Menon
All of us would have seen him making the token appearance in his movies. Here, he is just another AD standing in the crowd.
