Many well-wishers began extending their congratulations, unaware of the actual context behind the photograph. However, this rumor quickly spread like wildfire on social media, leaving some fans in shock.
The truth behind this viral image is quite different.
It is, in fact, a snapshot from the movie puja of Sai Pallavi's upcoming Tamil film
The picture, which is now going viral on social media, is evidently cropped from a group photo, which was clicked during the pooja ceremony of Sai Pallavi's upcoming project, which stars Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role.
The untitled project, which is tentatively named SK 21, is helmed by Rajkumar Periyasamy, and produced by legendary actor Kamal Haasan's home banner Raaj Kamal Films International. For the unversed, in the Tamil film industry, the primary cast and crew members who attend the pooja ceremony get welcomed with garlands, as per tradition. That is the reason why both Sai Pallavi and the SK21 director were seen with garlands in the viral picture.
