Actor Karthi, one of the most eligible bachelors in Kollywood is finally taken! Karthi made his debut in 2007 with the top-grossing film ‘Paruthiveeran’ and it attracted many who became his fans for his famous dialogue ‘Yenna mama sowkiyama’. The dashing actor is all set to tie knot with Ranjani, a MA (English Literature) graduate on July 3 this year.
What Karthi talked with Ranjani, his bride-to-be?
Actually, my parents have been looking out for a girl for a long time now. The only condition they stipulated was the girl should be well-educated and having respect towards our culture. This alliance came through my maternal uncle Thangaraj. Actually Ranjani hails from a Village near Erode and they migrated to Chennai for her studies. Stilly they do have a house and farming land in the village. My father liked the family background on hearing this. As huge crowd will be gathered if I meet her at Erode, we decided to meet at our common friend’s house in Chennai. We met her and finalized. That’s all.
Ahaan!!Tell us what did you talk to her?
“I’m very happy,” gushes the actor. To be frank, I take at least 3 to 4 months to say OK to the script for my film but when I met Ranjani I said OK immediately. My father too said, ‘I know you fell for her after seeing the photo itself.’.
Arranged marriage did sound like a scary option, but once I spoke to her for over an hour, I was convinced that she was the one for me. Most of the time I only was talking and she was listening quitely.
She has in-depth knowledge in many a subject. She is M.A and I am M.S. Then we have the same taste in English movies also. Wouldn’t that be enough?
Her favourite movies of yours?
She has seen only Paruthiveeran and Aayirathil Oruvan in which I was sporting a dirty boy look. She liked my dirty look in that films, she said. I would love to do another film with same appearance at least for her.
Tidbit: The ‘meeting’ between the cute couple ended with Karthi gifting her a ‘costly mobile phone’ on which she hasn’t stopped talking to him ever since!
