Last month his son Adharva debuted as hero with Banna Kathadi, where Murali made a cameo appearance and it was ironically his last film.
Murali made his debut with the critically acclaimed hit Poovilangu followed by another good film Pagal Nilavu.

Who can forget his brilliant performance in Cheran’s Porkalam, Vetri Kodi Kattu and Sundara Travels? These were successful movies from the actor who always kept a low profile. Lingusamy’s Anandam was another milestone hit in his career.
He won the Tamil Nadu best actor award in 2001 for his performance in Kadal Pookal
