Jai Arjun got some hilarious answers when he ran Word's spellcheck on Hindi actors and directors [Thanks Amit]. So I tried doing the same on our own Tamil cinema stars. Not quite as hilarious but a few of them are really apt, wouldn't you say?

Rajni - Raging

Kamal – Kaman

Ajith – Apish :-)

Vikram - Vicar

Surya - Surly

Satyaraj – Satiric (my favorite)

Simbhu – Nimbus :-)

Vivek - Vivid

Vadivelu - Naively

Abbas - Babes

Simran - Siren (another favorite!)

Jyothika – Mythical

Asin – Asian

Sadha - Sad

Kushboo – Cashbook

Gopika - Topical

Cheran – Cheering

Bala – Bale
