16th June 2019, will be celebrated as Father’s day and I am sure many of you are gearing up for the occasion. It is a day to commemorate fathers and their immense contribution to our lives. So before the daddy’s special day is upon us, we have something special, a quiz lined up for you. The subject is ‘Typical South Indian Fathers‘. We’ve picked up five actors from Sandalwood who have played the role of a South Indian father but with different personalities. Your task is to choose who your appa resembles the most. Our first type of personality is Srinivasan from Malgudi Days, aka the recently demised Girish Karnad, who left us 10th June 2019.
Watch Girish Karnad in the hit film Iqbal, here:
Malgudi Days was a rage for all of us while growing up and would air on Doordarshan in the late 80s. The late actor and veteran Girish Karnad was the first WT Srinivasan and had played the role of a dhoti wearing man, whose colleagues were foreigners. The main character of the show was a kid named Swami (portrayed by Master Manjunath) but everything he did was shadowed by his father WT Srinivasan. Swami’s father was a strict disciplinarian, who was a no-nonsense person. Well-versed in European philosophy apart from getting an English education, Srinivasan’s role enabled Girish Karnad to become a popular name in the industry.
