His actual name is Mani and he used to pass comments and counter arguments with his fellow mates which made his name as "Counter" Mani and it got corrupted into Goundamani.

Stated as Kollywood's Laurel and Hardy, Senthil and Goundamani have entertained people with their rib-tickling slapstick humour for more than two decades now. Goundamani has entertained two generations of Tamil audience with his unique style of comedy. His dialogues are woven with sarcasm and contempt and is often accompanied with impeccable body language. His most famous piece of comedy is the "Vazhaipazham" (Banana) joke with Senthil, in the film Karagattakaran.
