Since I studied in a Christian convent in Ooty and was housed in a hostel, I could not celebrate Diwali with my family in Chennai. There was a rule of ‘no firecrackers’ in the hostel also, so we just sat in the hostel and watched the fireworks in Ooty. After coming to Chennai, Diwali has become a memorable family celebration. This is a new experience for me. This Diwali will be ‘Mersal’.”

livelihood

In 2013, Gautham Karthik made his acting debut with Mani Ratnam’s film Kadal, in which he played the lead role of Thomas; However, the film flopped. In an interview, Gautam Karthik talked about his experience of working in Kadal and said,

Everyone thought that the film would be a big hit and I would become a star overnight. Unfortunately, it didn’t perform as well as we expected, although there are people who like it. But I learned a lot about the filmmaking process. For example, Rajeev Menon used to talk to me in detail about camera angles, lenses and how to light a frame. When I was dubbing for the film, Mani Ratnam used to tell me how he was going to edit the film. Looking back, I feel I got a lot from the film.

According to sources, Gautam talked about Rajinikanth and said that he should stick to films and avoid getting into politics. However, according to Gautam, his comment was misinterpreted by Rajinikanth’s fans. Later he posted a video on Twitter to clarify his statement about Rajinikanth. In the video, Gautam said, there is a controversy going on over one of my recent statements. I would like to say that this is a complete misunderstanding. I was asked whether I support Rajinikanth sir’s entry into politics. To which I replied that I do not understand politics and I would like to see him only as a superstar. But, my statement was taken out of context and misinterpreted because I did not support his entry. I am here only to be a part of films and I like watching Rajinikanth sir’s films.

  • According to Gautam, initially he never wanted to make a career in acting. In an interview, Gautam talked about this and said that before his acting debut, he was afraid of facing the camera. He said,

    Honestly, I never thought that I would become an actor someday. Although I come from a film background, I was never attracted to cinema, probably because I have always been uncomfortable with a camera. So, when my dad told me that Mani Ratnam sir wanted to meet me, I thought I would help him. But then, they asked me to audition for the lead role and eventually selected me. I couldn’t believe it because I thought I was going to be really uncomfortable in front of the camera. But, you know, it was the wait before my first shot that made me more nervous.
