Sasikumar thanks Rajinikanth for appreciating Ayothi
The film is the directorial debut of Manthira Moorthy
Earlier on Tuesday, actor Rajinikanth took to Twitter to laud Sasikumar's latest outing Ayothi. The actor who is currently filming for Jailer, took to social media to say, "After a long time, my friend Sasikumar got to do a message-oriented film. The director of the film, Manthira Moorthy, proved himself to be a fine filmmaker. I convey my best wishes to the makers of Ayothi.”
Responding to the compliments, actor-director Sasikumar said, "I am happy you referred to me as a friend rather than as an actor. Your appreciation for a film like Ayothi will be motivating for other good films. Thank you so much sir." It is to be noted that Sasikumar has starred along with Rajinikanth in Karthik Subbaraj's 2019 film, Petta.
நடிகர் எனக் குறிப்பிடாமல், நண்பர் என்று சொன்னதிலேயே மிகுந்த மகிழ்ச்சியடைந்தேன் சார். எந்த ஆர்ப்பாட்டமும் இல்லாமல், மிக எளிய படைப்பாக வந்திருக்கும் #அயோத்தி படத்தை பார்த்துப் பாராட்டியது நல்ல படைப்புகளுக்கான பெரிய நம்பிக்கை கொடுக்கிறது மிக்க நன்றி சார்— M.Sasikumar (@SasikumarDir) April 11, 2023
