    Legends in their 60s

    This one is on a lighter note...

    When commoners get close to their 60s, they take stock of their family, career, finance, look-ahead options etc. Our actors, and some of their adoring fans, instead hold on to the past. Nothing wrong with that.. just interesting, that's all...

    Here is a quick snapshot of how some of the legends did in their 60th year!

    Sivaji at 60:
    En Thamizh En Makkal - NHO
    Puthiya Vaanam - Flop

    MGR at 60:
    Indru Pol Endrum Vaazhga - Hit
    Navarathinam - Average
    Meenava Nanban - Blockbuster (political)

    Rajini at 60:
    Enthiran - Blockbuster

    KH at 60:
    Uttama Villain - Flop
    Papanasam - Hit
    Thoongavanam - Flop

    Thoughts? And, if we extend this to how the current actors would do in their 60s, that would be fun too....

    Tough to do this for actresses, since their age-claims are more outrageous lies than the men.

    Most of this info is from wiki/other sites... so, could be 1-2 years off either side... But to me, it is interesting to see how success follows or fails actors at this age.
