Definition

Smart-cookie, fixer, manipulator. I think that this is a Tamil derivative of the Hindi “Khiladi”, which means “sporstman”, that has assumed a transformed metaphorical meaning in conversational Tamil.

Usage

“Are you talking of Sumanth? He is a big killadi. There’s nothing he can’t arrange to his advantage, by hook or crook, and mostly by crook, to be frank.”
