"Though I have acted in a few films before, Mr Chandramouli is special to me. I share the screen with my dad (Karthik) in it", says actor Gautham Karthik.

After a grand debut in Mani Ratnam's Kadal, Gautham Karthik lost his way in Tamil cinema.

However he was back with a bang thanks to Ivan Thanthiran, Hara Hara Mahadevaki and Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuthu.

The actor now awaits the release of his next Mr Chandramouli. Directed by Thiru and proudced by Dhananjayan, the movie stars Ragina Cassandra and comedian Sathish in key roles. Veteran actor Karthick is Chandramouli in the movie.

Says Gautham Karthik, "My daddy was a busy actor when I was young. I hardly had any opportunity to spend time with him. Mr Chandramouli gave me an opportunity top spend a lot of time with my dad. I understood him well and his energy level was amazing".

Speaking about the movie, he says, "It was a great pleasure to work with director Thiru. He knew his plans well and executed them well."

Gautham, who is all praise for his co-star Regina, says, "She is a thorough professional. Our comfort levels were good and it was an awesome experience working with her. I am happy the beach song composed by Sam CS has gone viral. Brindha master, with whom I am working once again after Kadal, has added a sensuous flavour to it with energetic dance movements."

Talking about Varalaxmi, who plays Bhairavi, around whom the story revolves, the actor says, "She is a firebrand, both on and off screen. How she boldly raises her voice for a cause in real life is to be appreciated."
