The teaser launch of Vishal and Sunainaa's upcoming film, Laththi was held amid much fanfare on Sunday evening. The film is directed by debutant A Vinoth Kumar and is bankrolled by Nanda and Ramana. The guests on the stage doled out one speech after the other and many of them were impromptu including a casual interaction between school and college mates Udhayanidhi Stalin and Vishal. The film's lead actress Sunainaa, too, had her share of surprise.
When the actress was quizzed is she had a speech ready for the big occasion, she narrated an incident that happened on her flight to Chennai, which involved none other than Thalapathy Vijay. While addressing the audience, Sunainaa said that she had this habit of wearing her headphones and catch up on her sleep during the flight. "I was about to do the same. I placed my bag up and dropped the ticket in the pouch of the seat ahead of me. I wore my headphones and was about to close my eyes and drift off to sleep, when I realised someone tapping on my shoulder. I turned around and saw this man all masked up and wearing a cap and I couldn't recognise him at first. He said that someone is calling me. When I asked him, who, he said that actor Vijay was calling me."
The actress then revealed the conversation between them."Vijay sir was on my flight yesterday. We were sitting on the same row. He removed his mask and looked at me and said a 'Hi'. He then called me and I went and sat next to him. We were meeting after a very long time, after Theri. So there was a lot of catching up to do. When he asked why I was going to Chennai. I said that the Laththi teaser launch was happening. He asked if my speech was ready and I said no. Nevertheless, he said that he will watch the launch on YouTube. I was wondering why he would watch an unprepared speech. He then wished me and enquired about Vishal and his injuries he suffered on the set. He is updated about everything."
