Shanthanu Bhagyaraj is an Indian film actor who has worked predominantly in Tamil language films The son of actors K Bhagyaraj and Poornima Bhagyaraj, Shanthanu appeared as a child artist in his father's Vettiya Madichu Kattu 1998, before making his debut as a lead actor in the romantic comedy Sakkarakatti 2008


Shanthanu Bhagyaraj made his acting debut as a child artist in his father Bhagyaraj's film Vettiya Madichu Kattu 1998, and then worked as assistant director to his father in his sister, Saranya Bhagyaraj's debut project Parijatham 2006 Shanthanu appeared in his first lead role in the college-based romantic comedy Sakkarakatti 2008, appearing alongside actresses Ishita Sharma and Vedhika His performance received mixed reviews with Behindwoodscom stating: "Shanthanu has to play a thinly sketched hero, but he puts energy and charm into everything he does" and that "he is more than promising- he's star material, and he'll survive this wreck" Another critic at Sifycom stated that he "has that star quality to him which is so rare to find these days, but is wasted in a role in which he just romances his heroines and dances" Despite having a popular soundtrack composed by A R Rahman, the film received largely negative reviews and became a box office failure Despite the negative reception to the film, Shanthanu was recognised with the Best Male Debut Actor award at the Filmfare Awards and the Vijay Awards

After Sakkarakatti, Shanthanu appeared in the Malayalam film Angel John 2009, starring alongside Mohanlal and Nithya Menen, as a suicidal youth who is rescued by an angel Despite the high-profile cast, the film and Shanthanu's performance received mixed reviews and it did not perform well commercially The failure of his initial films meant that his next projects had significantly smaller budgets and lower profile releases His next release was his father's bilingual directorial venture Siddu +2 2010, with the failure of the Tamil version causing the Telugu version Love in Hyderabad, to be shelved Though the romantic comedy Kandaen 2011 received positive reviews and took a good opening, his subsequent films including the action drama Aayiram Vilakku 2011, Thangar Bachan's Ammavin Kaipesi 2012 and the courtroom drama Vaaimai 2016 received negative reviews and did not perform well at the box office In an interview in 2016, Shanthanu revealed that poor career choices had plagued his film career and he would subsequently not take advice from his father regarding film offers He mentioned his regret at missing out on potential projects he had been offered including Boys 2003, Kaadhal 2004 and Subramaniapuram 2008

Shanthanu was then cast by Parthiban to play the lead role in Koditta Idangalai Nirappuga 2017, with the director suggesting that he was keen to portray tribute to his mentor K Bhagyaraj, by casting his son in a film The actor called the film his "re-launch in Tamil cinema" and underwent a makeover to portray the lead role of a non-resident Indian who falls in love with a married woman played by Parvathy Nair Shanthanu won positive reviews for his performance, with a critic from The New Indian Express stating: "Shanthnu is a revelation here" and "with controlled, mature take on his role, Shanthnu displays subtle nuances of expression as Kevin travels from uncertainty and confusion, to guilt and regret" In 2017, he will also be seen in Adhiroopan's drama Mupparimanam, where he would portray a medical student
