R. K. Selvamani

R.K. Selvamani is a well known Tamil director. He is known to make many movies of the police or whodunit genre.


R.K. Selvamani made his debut with the thriller Pulan Visaranai; based on an allegation by
Auto Shankar that he had kidnapped many girls at the behest of some political bigwigs. This movie starring Vijaykanth was the biggest hit of 1990 in tamil. It also fetched a state award for Sarath Kumar for his portrayal of the villain character. He also made two movies based on assassination of Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. The latter (based on Rajiv's assassination) got embroiled into controversies with the Indian Film Censor Board and was cleared only recently (fourteen years after its completion). He also made Captain Prabhakaran starring Vijaykanth in 1991 which is both the director's and Vijaykanth's biggest hit. He then made Chembaruthi; an unusual love story starring Roja (actress) and Prashanth in 1992. However, since 1997 he has had no hits. So he retired in 1999. (Though he directed Roja's 100th film "Durga" in 2001). After being instrumental in launching the TV Channel "Tamilthirai", he however had resigned from it now to start his next venture as director "Pulan Visaranai-2" with Prashanth as hero which may release soon.


Roja who debuted in his Chembaruthi acted in many of his hit films and later became his wife in 2001. In fact, he always stood by her during her most difficult times. He evenmortgaged his property in Chennai to bail out Roja from a cheque bounce case.
