Dhanush who became toast of the nation with Kolveri Di, impressed all with his debut performance in Raanjhanaa in Bollywood. Responding to question on whether film background helped him, he said “Trust me, it has been anything, but easy to make it as an actor. The filmi politics almost ended my career as an actor! So many people tried to bring me down. Earlier you only needed to make a film and it would go on to become a hit on its own merit, today you have to beg audiences to watch a film in a theatre. Sometimes I wish we actors only had to act and not bother about anything else, like promotional activities etc etc.
