She recalled how the actor recognised and appreciated her during the audio launch of the movie Chennai Express. She said that the actor appreciated her singing and went onto narrate an incident when the actor met her mother. “My mother noticed, and put out a long tweet, about everything she observed and a general thank you – because I am not the type to get excited in general for anything at all. I went to the Chennai Express Audio launch. A person remembered that LOOOONG essay my mother wrote, word for word – and asked me to convey his respects to my mother. Cut to a few hours later, I was saying bye, taking leave of everyone, and he said he’ll speak to my mother. I thought he was joking and he wasn’t. He took my phone, spoke to my mother for some 15 minutes,” she had written.
Years ago, when I sang Titli in Chennai Express, a superstar tagged me and said I sounded like love. If I remember right, it was the first time an actor, anywhere had said anything nice about my singing.
I remember laughing and crying at the same time.
