Several Tamil movie buffs were upset that Ram and Jaanu (played by Vijay Sethupathi and Trisha) in 96 though were made for each other weren’t destined to lead a life together.
But, they were happy when they saw the pictures of Aadhitya Baskar and Gouri G Kishan, who played the younger version of Vijay Sethu and Trisha respectively that went viral on social media on Monday. Adhitya, son of veteran actor MS Baskar, posted a picture with Gouri on his Instagram page and captioned it, “The best colour of my crayon set. One of the best things happened to me. Happy birthday heart #jaanuforever #loveyou.”
Netizens instantly shared the picture across social media and said that even if Ram and Jaanu weren’t husband and wife on screen, they wished for this young couple to grow old together. When we got in touch with Adhitya, he told us, “I later deleted the post keeping Gouri in mind. I’m not a person, who takes rumours and speculation close to my heart. But, Gouri has a career ahead. To clarify, we both are good friends. It was only in the film we played lovers. I’m focussed on my career as well as my academics right now.” Gouri, a journalism student took to Twitter to clarify and wrote, “No, we are not in love. We both played Ram and Janu as lovers on screen and NOT off screen. Please stop spreading these #FalseAllegations and #FakeNews. Show some #Respect.” Well that’s it for now folks. Looks like Ram and Jaanu aren’t destined to be together... for now at least.
