Vijay continues, “I don’t have a brother, but I get this feeling of brotherhood whenever I talk to him. We first started talking about work and then, slowly began sharing our personal things. He asks me for my advice and I ask him for his. Whenever I am on a long call with someone, my family automatically assumes that I am talking to Ananth. And with Ananth’s family, they thought he was in a relationship (laughs). After a tiring day of shoot, speaking to Ananth gives me the much-needed relaxation.”
The anchor-lyricist-actor tells us that Ananth kept him busy during the lockdown. “He asked me to pen three songs for the film during the lockdown. During such hard times, it was difficult to get through each day and I am so thankful that he kept me occupied during that time. Ananth, music director Kaashif, and I kept discussing over calls and finished three songs. Lockdown got to us at some point, right? I needed a brother like Ananth to keep myself sane. He and I used to watch a lot of movies, discuss music, and other common interests we share. Both of us are running towards a dream, and I am happy that I am running along with my brother. There have been times when I’ve said no to an opportunity and felt guilty about it later. When I tell him about it, he gives me a perfect explanation that makes me feel better,” he states.
Recollecting some fun moments, Vijay says, “Once the two of us went to a restaurant and And when the time came for us to settle the bill, I realised I had forgotten to carry my wallet. Turned out, he didn’t have his wallet as well. We ended up having more food until a friend came to bail us out. We’ve had so many such fun memories together. I am so lucky to have him in my life.”
