Over the years, Sivakarthikeyan has become a bankable star in Tamil cinema and he is now definitely a force to be reckoned with. We all know Sivakarthikeyan as a talented actor, an entertainer, and a great human being. At the same time, we should also acknowledge the genuine friend inside SK that many do not notice. Sivakarthikeyan has been someone who values friendship and has taken good care of his friends, right from the beginning.

Siva's extensive support to his friends in cinema started way back in 2016 with Remo, where he made RD Raja, a producer. RD Raja is the creative producer of films like Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam and has been traveling with SK since his early days in cinema. SK made Raja a producer and the duo collaborated on three films - Remo, Velaikkaran, including the upcoming Ayalaan.

In 2018, Sivakarthikeyan turned a producer himself with Kanaa, which marked the directorial debut of the multi-talented Arunraja Kamaraj. Siva and Arunraja have been close friends since their college days and both of them embarked on their cinema journey together. SK decided to help his dear friend Arunraja and make him a director with Kanaa and his decision was a huge success.

Later, SK teamed up with director Nelson Dilipkumar for Doctor. Nelson has directed Siva's television shows in the past and the duo has traveled together in their small screen days. Without forgetting the people who were with him during the low phase of his life, SK, as promised, acted in a film directed by Nelson, and Doctor went on to become a phenomenal success.

Sivakarthikeyan will be teaming up next with director KV Anudeep of Jathi Ratnalu fame for a Telugu - Tamil bilingual and the actor has made one of his close friends, the co-producer of the new film. Siva's longtime friend, Arun Viswa is the co-producer of SK 20, which is expected to go on floors this month.

Yesterday (Jan 15), it was officially announced that Sivakarthikeyan will be doing a film for a new production venture of Kamal Haasan's Raaj Kamal Films International, in association with Sony Pictures India and the announcement garnered wide attention. This new film will be directed by Rajkumar Periasamy of Rangoon fame. Interestingly, Rajkumar Periasamy is also SK's close friend, who worked as a television show director on Vijay TV. Rajkumar has been at the helm for several superhit shows and big television events on Vijay TV, including Bigg Boss.

Following RD Raja, Arunraja Kamaraj, Nelson Dilipkumar and Arun Viswa, Sivakarthikeyan has once again lent his helping hand to another friend, Rajkumar Periasamy and one can definitely hope the director to score big with this film. Sivakarthikeyan valuing friendship and making his close ones grow along with him is a quality that needs to be recognized and this is definitely a highly appreciable gesture.
