Newcomers Gautham Karthik and Thulasi Nair, who are making their
debut in Mani Ratnam's Kadal, has not only drawn attention
with their looks in the forthcoming Tamil film but also through
their first-ever on-screen kiss.
The lip-lock scene between Gautham Karthik and Thulasi Nair has
been well shot and they have tried their best to give it a natural
look. The buzz says that initially the actress was not comfortable
doing the sequence. But she did the scene after Mani Ratnam asked
the cast and crew, who were not necessary to be on the sets, to
leave the place.
Thulasi Nair took four hours to complete the scene. It is a
ten-second lip-lock scene shot in the sea shore. However, talking
about the scene, Gautham Karthik has said that he was not told
about the intimate scene well in advance rather Mani Ratnam
informed about it on the day of the shooting. Like Thulasi, he too
Kadal will hit the screens on February 1 worldwide in
Tamil and Telugu versions. Arjun Sarja, Arvind Swamy and Lakshmi
Manchu are in the important roles. The movie is all about good
versus evil. It narrates the story of an individual caught between
sin and redemption.
