Tall dark handsome...Tamil...

I am always teased by the telugus and other neighbouring state friends that we tamilians like dark and hunky heros in our movies.
(Telugus think that their 'Chiru' is one handsome smart guy).
They are shocked at Rajinikanth's, Vijaykanth's and all the other dark kanths' and non-kanths' success in Tamilnadu.
Typical kosten is 'epadee sree..u ppl like these guys...they are dark..flabby.....' etc.
This made me think...do we really like dark, a little plumpy guys with an interior part of Tamilnadu accent ?
When I went to North India recently..I kept weighing the looks of average Northie guys against our Tamils.
After thinking a lot I felt the Northie guys looked a tad bit girlie with no mush and a light complexion.
All these coupled with their skinny structure will make them look like lost souls in Tamilnadu.
Bring the image of Rajini and our very own Gaptan....hmm..I prefer that to the 'ayyo paavam' look of the typical northie guys.
Our heros look protective and give us a sense of belonging.
Their language makes us feel at home.
So maybe we can't generalise preferences as it is very regional.
Considering the Hindi movie heroes...I can give 85% marks only to Akshay Kumar and Jackie shroff.
Beats me why the ' Men's fair&lovely ' or whatever it is, is wasting their money on advts here in TN.
Move away Zyeds and Amirs.....we want Vishal and Vijay anyday.

Hi Sree,

Was jumping around blogs. What else do you expect from a Voracious Blog Reader??

Anyway. You must be aware that on clicking on a Blogger's name, it usually leads to the Blogger's profile instead of the blogger's page.

I read this "About me" in one of the Blogger's Profile. I was ROTFL after reading it and decided to let you know immediately.

It read:

About me:
- - - - -

Tall, Dark and Handsome.
