Internet sensation Nochipatti Thirumoorthy, whose recent rendition of Pathala Pathala from Kamal Haasan's latest outing Vikram, went viral, got the opportunity to meet the Ulaganayagan himself. In a video that is doing the rounds on the internet, the visually challenged singer is seen telling Kamal Haasan that he wanted to take a picture with the star at an awards ceremony, but it didn't materialise. However, he said that he was glad that he got a chance to meet him. 

Thirumoorthy then sang the hit song Pathala Pathala using a plastic bucket as an instrument, much to the delight of Kamal Haasan. Later, when Kamal Haasan asks about his future plans, Thirumoorthy tells him that he wants to learn music formally. Kamal Haasan is then seen asking if he would pursue music if he enrolls him in AR Rahman's KM Music Conservatory, to which the 'Vaa Saamy's singer says that he will definitely learn and improve himself. This gesture of Kamal Haasan, has won many hearts. 

Music composer D Imman, who introduced Thirumoorthy into the film industry with a song in Jiiva's Seeru, immediately thanked Kamal Haasan for his support. He wrote on his social media page, "I’m so elated with all the proceedings of Singer Thirumoorthi! May you Rise Higher and Higher! I will be always a happy man adoring your baby steps towards Mighty Achievements! Thanks to Kamal Sir for your kind support! (sic)."

Imman had roped in Thirumoorthy for Seeru after his rendition of Imman's popular composition, Kannaana Kanney, from Viswasam, went viral on the internet. He had shared pictures from the recording session and written, "Good Day Everyone! Immense Joy to Introduce thambi #NochipattiThirumoorthy as a Playback singer in my next upcoming release #Seeru with @JiivaOfficial in the lead! Directed by @rathinasiva7 Produced by @VelsFilmIntl Lyric by Parvathy! A soulful song coming your way! Praise God! (sic)." Thirumoorthy also went on to sing in Rajinikanth's Annaaththe, which also had music by Imman.
