We sure miss late Srihari, not only as a character artiste, but also as a person who is humane in real sense.

Underplaying yet strong, Tamil veteran Satyaraj may not know Telugu very well, but he proved his mettle as a father in the gamut of most Telugu households with the film Mirchi. After playing the typical overrated Tam Goon Appa in Bollywood’s Chennai Express, he played the role of a father to Prabhas in Mirchi, springing out a gentle dad character who is more of a friend who can sit and share a drink with his son to talk over things that matter.
