Goundamani (Tamil: கவுண்டமணி) is a Tamil film actor and comedian. He is renowned for his comedy sketches with fellow actor Senthil. Goundamani was born in Valagundapuram,a village in Udumalaipettai, Tamil Nadu, India. He gained entry into the Tamil film industry, the Kollywood, at the age of 16 due to his strong theatrical background. His original name was Mani and when he played the famous role of "Oor Gounder" in one of his plays, the name got stuck and henceforth he came to be known as "Goundamani".Goundamani was initially a solo actor and then paired up with Senthil to form a comedy duo. Widely considered[who?] as Kollywood's Laurel and Hardy, Senthil and Goundamani have now performed slapstick humour and acted more than 450 films.
