Can a cleanly- shaven head(‘gundu’) be comical? Not always. Along with comedians on screen, heroes, villians and heroines at times make their heads shine.
Of course, the impact could be varying: heroes cranium surprises, villians’s scull scares, where as a pretty gal’s soft noddle beckons. The outcome is totally different, when a comedian sporting glittering pumpkin –shaped dome, makes his appearance.
AVS, a journalist-turned-comedian, followed this ‘gundu’ tradition to look funny. But he has never been on record that he had dandruff.
There is a small time comedian, who has made his surname ‘gundu’. His name is ‘Gundu’ sudarshan. He is short in size too. He had given up lecturing in a college, when joined films. He would frequently appear in the films of the most revered directors, Bapu and Viswanath. Today he seldom finds takers. ‘After all , what I’ve earned all these years is ‘gundui”, he complains. So, ‘Gundu’ makes one sad too.
