The actor has now penned a heartfelt note on completing the milestone. The letter read, "It's been 10 years now since the release of my first film, Kadal, and what an adventure it's been! I would firstly like to say thank you to Mani sir for trusting me and giving me this beautiful opportunity. I would also like to say a huge thank you to the Producers, Directors, Technicians and Actors, who I've had the privilege of working with, for believing in me."
"I would like to express my whole-hearted gratitude to my family, friends, well wishers and fans, without whom I wouldn't be here today. It's been exciting, elevating, terrifying, challenging, wonderful and enlightening. But more than all this, it's been an amazingly humbling journey," he added.
He further added, "If there's one thing I know, it's that I am absolutely nothing without you all! Whatever I have learned these past 10 years, through all my successes and failures, big and small, I shall use it to the best of my abilities to continue to perform and entertain you all. You deserve the best from me and I shall strive to give you all my best no matter what may come (sic)."
Gautham Karthik is currently shooting for the thriller titled Criminal directed by Dhakshina Moorthy Ramar.
