Blessy
Assistant Editor

Blessy Chettiar is the person films are made for. She can sit through anything that moves, and walk out with the same expression she has had since the 1990s. When not at work sitting with ears plugged in to avoid people, she is seen giving unwarranted health advice to people or trying to perfect a new yogi pose. Her pastimes include being outdoors with inanimate objects of nature.
