That's me, as an eager 11-year old kid waiting by the lift when, I still vividly remember, seeing THE Superstar casually walk out with a smile and a nod to everyone, though being rushed by his security.
Many flocked to try their best to grab a picture with #Kabali, only to get shoved away. But for some reason, I remember standing still, just watching #Endhiran walk through the hyper fans and past the sliding doors to his car.
This, was a moment. No photo, video, or insta story (well, there wasn't Instagram then! But you get what I mean. This was back in 2002, fyi) couldn't have done justice to what this moment felt like. As that kid in awe, for some reason, I didn't scramble with the crowd in hopes to get a picture snapped. Instead, I stood in admiration in the moment that fueled my desire to become an Actor.
It was these few seconds of close proximity with #Kaala that made me realize that
1. Respect is earned.
2. Character supercedes Fame.
3. Be true to your craft.
4. Walk your journey with Gutso and utmost Faith.
5. Humility is key.
Okay to be fair, cute little curly haired boy (i.e. Me) didn't reflect on all this at that age but over the years, it became pertinent.
This moment shall serve to be a reminder as to why I am on the path I am on, and to never stop moving forward. I wish you the same too! Have a blessed week! 🤗
