'Santhanam's comedic and considerate side'

Behindwoods recently held a contest for the film Kanna Laddu Thinna Asaiya. The lucky chosen ones would get to meet and greet Comedy Superstar Santhanam.

The venue for the event was at the shooting spot of Kanna Laddu Thinna Asaiya at Meenkashi wedding hall located in Vadapalani. The hall was being used as the location for the film’s song sequence. The set was that of a marriage situation and had plenty of extras. Notable artists on the set apart from Santhanam were Powerstar Dr. Sreenivasan, Sethu, Vishaka Singh, Kovai Sarala and VTV Ganesh. Popular dance master Sivashankar was the choreographer for the song sequence.

The winners of the contest arrived at the venue with great joy in gaining the opportunity to meet their favorite Santhanam. The winners took turns to get a picture taken with Santhanam who was dressed casually in a t-shirt and shorts. The star comedian was at his humorous best making harmless and hilarious comments on some of the guests.

Then it was turn of the winners to put Santhanam in a spot of bother and ask him some crazy questions. The star boldly fielded all of them with good spirit. Some asked him whether he would do an action film to which Santhanam replied by saying that people would not come to watch him if he did. One asked if he would sport a 6-pack to which he quipped by saying that he’s doing everything to avoid looking like a ‘carry bag’. Another winner asked him if Andrea was still his favorite heroine, to which he said jokingly not to probe too much into these matters. When asked about the title of the film, Santhanam revealed that the original title was ‘Dhinasari 4 Kaatchigal’, which would ironic even if the film failed, but it was later changed to its present title ‘Kanna Laddu Thinna Asaiya’.

One particular winner requested Santhanam to say “hi dude” like Partha from OKOK, because a friend of his with the same name supposedly speaks the same way. Others asked about his future projects to which Santhanam confirmed his participation in the next Ajith film directed by Siva and also his next film with director Rajesh and Karthi titled All in All Azahagu Raja.

The event came to close with Santhanam posing for pictures with the winners and thanked them for their love and support. The evening ended with the star at his hospitable best offering high-tea to the winners and others who accompanied them for the event.

All in all it was a great opportunity to get a first-hand experience of Santhanam’s comedic and considerate side.
