  • Shaman acted in the Tamil film ‘Thorati’ in 2019 for which he was well appreciated by the audience and the critics.
  • During an interview, he shared that he never wanted to become an actor. He further said,

Thorati is a film that delves into the lives of shepherds who walk miles in search of pasture for their goats and sheep. This story happens in a village. And the lead actor who plays a shepherd needed to look like one. Not many actors would be willing to take the risks involved in getting tanned, losing tons of weight and walking barefoot. So, I decided to take the plunge and do the role myself.”

  • In 2019, he filed a petition accusing the family members of his co-star Sathyakala of house arresting her in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. [5]DT Next
