Silambarasan’s friends and fans call him these days as Karthik, impressed by his performance in Gautham Vasudev Menon’s ‘Vinnaithandi Varuvaya’.
“Silambarasan too likes himself to be called Karthik, since he has started loving his character ever since Gautham narrated the story to him. The ‘VTV’ character has many resemblances to his nature, and he is the one who has a lot of respect towards love quite like Karthik,” circles close to him say.
“The feedback the actor has been getting ever since the film hit theatres is stunning,” they say and add: “One day, a Singapore girl shot him a mail saying she decided to mend fences with her boyfriend whom she ditched a year ago thanks to VTV.”
Saying Silambarasan would henceforth concentrate on characters that have some difference, sources add: “He is fully aware of the fact that run-of-the-mill kind of movies would not work. He is planning his forthcoming ventures with extra care.”
