“I have been struggling a lot financially. People wouldn’t know what kind of sacrifices an artist is going through to appear on screen. My parents gave me 15 years of time to pursue my dream. But the problem is, I’m just doing supporting roles since my initial days. Supporting roles that won’t have much impact in the plot. I’m 30 years old now. Still doing the roles of hero’s friend and heroine’s friend ” Raghavendra said in the interview.
Puli also vented his emotions about how weak supporting characters are being written for Tamil serials. “I have attended many auditions and got rejected due to my “stuttering” problem. Even though I tell them that I could manage during the shoot, they wouldn’t consider” the aspiring actor shared.

The Kanaa Kaanum Kalangal actor further said “In other professions, there would be a monthly salary. But in acting field, our income is not standard. We will be getting paid only if we have job. Rs. 6000 was my salary two months ago. How could I run a family? I have been studying in class 1 for past 15 years” in his interview.
Puli also criticized the Tamil serials which lacks creativity. He said that every serial has the same plot and the role of a friend in a Tamil serial has not specific aspect other than consoling the protagonist.
