CHENNAI: People familiar with veteran actor Nasser in Nayakan (1987)might mistake his son and actor Luthfudeen Basha as his doppelganger. The 22-year-old awaits the release of his upcoming film Parandhu Sella Va after his debut in Saivam (2014). He opens up about his thoughts on Chennai...
One thing about namma ooru that you fancy?
Chennai is a nice blend of crazy chaos and calm bliss.
A Chennai-based celeb or any personality whom you would like to date or go out with?
I can think of several but can’t narrow it down to one!
Three things here that can’t be found in any part of the world?
The people, movies, climate...and, of course the biryani!
Your favourite hangout spot?
Besant Nagar beach
Three stereotypes about the city and the people that make you roll your eyeballs?
People who claim Chennai is so perfect in anyway and overlook the obvious flaws and do nothing about it.
Where would you take a person who is new to the city? Why?
First go to some road side biryani kadai. If they’re vegetarians,I will take them to Saravana Bhavan. The sambar there is to die for!
One part of the city or a specific area that you want to explore?
North Madras. The city feels really different in those parts.
What would you do to prove someone that you are a true Chennai vaasi?
Bargain like a boss with auto drivers refusing to use the meter.
Two Madras baashai words that you would teach a new bie?
****. I will teach them how to properly communicate with a horn in their vehicle.
A Tamil movie dialogue or song which fits Chennai?
Sorgame endraalum, athu namma ooru pola varuma?
What is the craziest thing you have ever wanted to do in the city? And where?
I want to graffiti literally every wall in the city.
If you would like to install another statue in Marina beach, what or who would it be about?
A monument dedicated to every one who helped during the floods.
