pinched their flesh twice to make sure they
are witnessing the real thing. They couldn’t
believe their eyes on what they were seeing.
When Namitha emerged from her caravan clad
in a swimsuit, this was exactly what her
fans strutting around in Pondy beaches felt.
You may have questions now. Did she do that
just to take a plunge in the icy cold water
of Pondy beaches? Won’t she rather
do that in Chennai in private? Well, the
answer for both is no. She was in Pondy
recently for filming a series for a television
channel named ‘Ellam Namithavukkaga’
based on her.
Fearing the fanfare, the crew decided
to carry on the shoots as early as
5.00 in the morning. As they expected
the crowd was sparse in the beaches,
however news spread like forest fire
on the spotting of Namitha in a swimsuit
and the place was thronged with fans
in no time. Namitha was swarmed with
fans and the crewmembers of the shoots
did not have any clue as to how she
could be rescued.
Later, upon the intervention of police,
the crowd was dispersed and a startled
Namitha threw herself into the caravan
and took off. The shoots were cancelled
could handle the mob in Chennai, which
occasionally happens when I go for shopping
in malls. On the other hand, I had absolutely
no idea how this crowd in Pondicherry
could be dealt with. Finally, we had to
cancel the shoots, stated Namitha.
