Trisha And Gautham Menon Send Out Hope To Aspiring Filmmakers; Twitter Trends #WhereIsKarthik

Trisha Krishnan At Unicef Event In Chennai

Last week, Trisha put out a video on Twitter, face-timing director Gautham Menon. The Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta director was telling her where to position the camera and laid emphasis on the resolution in which each shot had to be recorded. Trisha wrote, “What a fun morning. Can’t wait to show you guys what we filmed.”


On Friday evening, Ondraaga Entertainment, the director’s production banner, dropped a video; the teaser of a short film the two were seen filming earlier in what came across as a behind-the-scenes (BTS) video. Titled Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn, Trisha is speaking to a Karthik, motivating him to write and assuring him that theatres will open soon. She also talks about the many Over-The-Top (OTT) platforms that are looking out for good content and adds that they will approach him for his work. (Is Menon conveying his approval for direct OTT releases through this?)

With the breezy trademark background score and singer-voice artist Chinmayi‘s voice, it is more than obvious that this is a spin-off of the duo’s 2010 hit Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa. The romantic drama about Karthik, an aspiring filmmaker who tries to strike a balance between his career and volatile love interest, Jessie.

The lead roles were essayed by Simbu and Trisha along with VTV Ganesh, Bobby Antony, Samantha, and Naga Chaitanya in supporting roles.

While the teaser took Twitter by storm, Simbu fans got the hashtag ‘WhereIsKarthik’ to trend, wondering if the actor was also a part of the short and whether this was hinting at a sequel for Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa.
