Waiting to take off
A cousin of the Karthika-Thulasi sisters, Gauri has yet to get a big break like her more popular cousins. Her second Tamil film, Valiyudan Oru Kadhal, comes a couple of years after her debut release, Sembattai. Set to hit theaters next month, Valiyudan…., directed by Sanjeevan, has debutant Rajesh playing the male lead. A rich girl-poor boy love saga, ‘‘it will have an unusual climax’’ says the director. Hopefully, it would be a career booster
for Gauri, too.
