Keerthy Suresh still Vijay’s fangirl
As Keerthy Suresh keeps us waiting in the lobby of producer RD Raja’s studio office, I’m duly informed that she was out shooting at Binny Mills for Bairavaa , Vijay’s 60th film. In a TV interview earlier, I remembered her mentioning she was still in school when she saw Vijay in flesh and blood for the first time.
When she’s finally ready, there is still a visible inertia of fatigue on her face. She prefers to keep her voice very low; people sitting just a seat away would have to strain to get every word. I remind her about the Vijay darshan in Kerala, in an attempt to ask her what she can reveal about Bairavaa . She is tight-lipped. “Nothing!” she says. “Except that I cannot bring myself to believe that he’s now a colleague. I’m still in fangirl mode next to him.”
