Actor Karthi might be an unstoppable force when it comes to delivering hit after hit in Kollywood. But all that the fame dint seem to translate off screen, during his recent visit to a popular club. The actor was caught up in an embarrassing situation attending a function where he was invited as chief guest by the Madras Gymkhana officials.
The actor arrived at the Gymkhana Club dressed casually for the event. He had been invited on by the Tamilnadu Theater Owners Association to celebrate 125 successful years of the Gymkhana. The actor was to inaugurate a new association on the same day, but things got delayed beyond scheduled time just because Karthi had got a crew cut T-shirt on, instead of a formal one. The dressing code of the Gymkhana states that those entering should neatly carry themselves in formals. Seeing the actor being punished for wearing a pair of T-shirt and Jeans, members Paneerselvam and Annamalai tried their best to convince an approval from the club chief, all in vain. The chief guest was then asked to wait inside his car until they got him a well collared shirt from a nearby showroom, following which he walked in to claps from onlookers.
That’s a memorable shirt you’ve got there Karthi.
