The audio launch of Karthi - Jyotika's Thambi happened this morning at Sathyam Cinemas and the event was graced by Suriya, Sivakumar, Sathyaraj, and many other big names from the film fraternity. At the audio launch, Karthi had revealed that one of his fans, Nithyanand had recently passed away in a road accident. He requested the gathering to maintain a minute of silence to express their condolences and also as a mark of respect. After the silence, he requested his fans to drive carefully and take care of themselves and their families.


Similarly, actor Suriya had also advised his fans the same and told them not to drive during the wee hours around 3 AM or 4 AM. Nithyanand was apparently one of the chief members of Karthi's Chennai Welfare Fans Club and his demise has come as a shocker for him. Earlier before attending the audio launch, Karthi went to Nithyanand's house at Ulundurpet to pay his final respects and offer his condolences to Nithyanand's family. Karthi broke into tears immediately after seeing Nithyanand's mortal remains and the video of that has gone viral on social media.


Karthi is seen emotionally moved and broken. The video has been doing the rounds on social media and Karthi's gesture to pay respect to one of his fans has made everyone grow respect towards him. Those who haven't seen the video yet, catch it here:
