Fan moment: I am now a proud farmer because Kaththi brought me closer to agriculture, says Theni Pandi

I became a fan when ...

It's hard to answer how I connected with Thalapathy from the beginning of his career, starting from Naalaiya Theerpu. I think it was his appearance as a boy next door that worked. His words, both on screen and outside, are always quite inspiring. He always behaves like an older brother every time I interact with him and often advises turning negative situations in our favor. Ours is a family that has been in agriculture for several generations. Although I was not interested in pursuing it, it was Kaththi who brought me closer to agriculture. I am now a proud farmer.

When I met my idol ...

I met him for the first time during the filming of Sivakasi. But it was in Pollachi, during the filming of Velayudham, where I had the opportunity to take a picture with him. There was a large crowd waiting in line to click on the photos with him. When I was behind only three or four people, the camera stopped working. I used to have a penchant for photography then; I had a studio in Theni. I asked if my camera could be used to take photos. I was glad that around 300 fans could click on the photos with my camera. I went there to meet Thalapathy for a minute, but I ended up spending more than an hour! When the photo session was almost over, he agreed to click on one more photo with me. I had noticed that the photo shoot with the fans had gone well because of my camera.

The craziest thing I've ever done as a fan ...

Watching his films frequently and traveling to other places when his films were not released in Theni have always been the norm. Among his films, I think it's Theri who I've seen the maximum number of times in the theater ... about 150 times. I have even seen Sura more than 100 times. Burning camphor in the palm is a practice I did three times during the FDFS of his films. It was for Sarkar that I did the last time. My birthday also fell the same day. But somehow, Thalapathy saw the picture on Facebook and warned me not to. In fact, he was very angry and told me to refrain from doing such practices to make him happy.
