At the Thambi audio launch, Suriya said that his wife Jyotika and brother Karthi are great actors that they can do an emotional scene without glycerin. "But in twenty years, I am unable to shed tears on-screen without the help of glycerin. If I'm right, tried once in 'Nandha' ", said Suriya.
A fan who wanted to see Karthi in 'Thambi' audio launch met with an accident and lost his life. Addressing the issue Suriya advised fans to not travel at midnight. Karthi also started the audio launch event by paying condolences to the young fan.
Karthi said: "Thambi is the quickest film in my career. We wrapped the film in sixty-five days". The actor also said that very soon, he will make an official announcement on 'Kaithi 2'.
Thambi is all set to release on December 20.
