Filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon and actor Trisha have reunited for Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya (VTV) reboot, a short film which marks the return of the actress as Jessie from the original film.
Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya (2010), which was directed by Menon, is a Tamil romantic drama starring Simbu and Trisha in lead roles.
The teaser of the short film, titled Karthik Dial Seytha Yenn was released on Sunday. It features Trisha reviving her most-loved on-screen character, Jessie. She is shown talking to Karthik on the phone in the teaser.
It is worth mentioning that Simbu played the character of Karthik, an aspiring filmmaker, in Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya.
Trisha is seen encouraging Karthik on the phone. “Everything will be alright. Theatres will open soon. There’s Netflix and Amazon now. They’ll all come looking for you. They all want good content, right? Everything will be fine. You wait and see.”
Menon shared the teaser on Twitter. He wrote: “There’s hope and a short film coming soon!
Here’s the link to the teaser (sic).”
The teaser ends with VTV’s signature tune. Menon plans to release the short film soon.
Upon the release of the teaser, Simbu’s fans on Twitter demanded that they wanted to see their star also feature in the short.
It is rumoured that the second teaser will feature Karthik on the other end of the line talking to Jessie.
On the career front, Menon is awaiting the release of his upcoming Tamil film, Joshua: Imai Pol Kaakha (2020). He also recently confirmed that he is in talks with Kamal Haasan for the sequel to Vettaiyadu Vilayadu (2006).
