Nayanthara and Yogi Babu’s camaraderie goes back to their 2018 dark comedy crime movie, Kolamav Kokila. Thanks to the popularity of the song Kalyana Vayasu, composed and sung by Anirudh Ravichander, we managed to come across an unexpected jodi. For the uninitiated, Kolamavu Kokila does not have a male protagonist, as Nayanthara runs the show. However, Yogi Babu has a love interest in the movie and it’s none other than the young Kokila, who is seen smuggling drugs with her innocent face. While the two actors were hilarious in the film, the scene where the comedian finally expresses his interest in Kokila (followed by the song) has found immense prominence.
Interestingly, at the Zee Cine Awards Tamil 2020, as Yogi Babu received his trophy for Best Comedian, the actor once again recreated the scene! Nayanthara, who was sitting in the audience, certainly couldn’t help blushing as Yogi Babu narrated his lines, from their film. You can check out the funny video below.
The clip starts with Yogi Babu stating how he is thankful for all the recognition and love that he has received from his fans and the audience. Throughout the clip, Yogi Babu continues to make funny statements, that you would usually find in his films. Discussing marriage, the comedian has the funniest retort, as he says that while he is looking for women, they aren’t even looking at him. In the past year, the comedian has been a sidekick to several actors including Sivakarthikeyan, Thalapathy Vijay, Ajith Kumar, Jayam Ravi and more. In fact, he kicked off 2020 by starring in Darbar, alongwith superstar Rajinikanth.
Kolamavu Kokila stars Nayanthara, Yogi Babu, Saranya Ponvannam, R. S. Shivaji, Charles Vinoth, and Hareesh Peradi, in pivotal roles. The story of the film revolves around Kokila, a young girl, who is struggling to find a job that will help her take care of her parents and sister. When her mother is diagnosed with lung cancer, Kokila is left with no choice but to work for a drug lord, Mohan, who runs a cocaine business. As she reluctantly takes up the smuggling job, Kokila manages to earn a name for herself for being so good at it. Things are going great, until a new inspector enters the vicinity, and tries to crack down Kokila and Mohan. Meanwhile, as she tries to quit the drug scene, it doesn’t go down well and leads to a series of unfortunate events. How will Kokila and her family escape the cops and the drug lords?
