Gayathrie Shankar a.k.a. Gayathrie of Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom and Rummy fame, broke down out of emotion while speaking at the audio-launch of her upcoming film Mellisai, which is incidentally her third film opposite Vijay Sethupathi who paired up opposite her in the above-said films too.
Directors Ram and Thamira, Karthick Subbaraj, Ma Ka Pa Anand, Tamizhachi Thanga Pandian and many others took part in the audio launch held in the city yesterday. Debutant Ranjith Jayakodi has directed the film which has been eagerly looked forward to by Vijay Sethupathy’s fans.
Speaking at the event, Gayathrei said “Mellisai could just turn out to be turning point I’m looking forward to in my career. I have huge expectations that the film would do well and earn me the name of an actress with substance….” Even before she could complete the sentence, she started crying and couldn’t continue to speak. She resumed her seat after stopping her speech abruptly.
Vijay Sethupathi and Jayakodi pacified her. Later, Jayakodi said during his speech that Gayathrie had put in tremendous hard-work in the film and this might have made her turn ‘emotional’. Vijay Sethupathi was spotted in a handlebar moustache.
