Wow! I would like to thank each one of you who made tele-vetti 1 a big success. Special mention to my family - ammani , gayathri, guevera and kalthoon tilakji . Naama oru kalai-kudumbam-ngrada ulagukku prove pannitom. I would also like to thank Chinnathirai kalaignargal for their thought provoking acts in megaaaaaa serials.

Now for the results:

  • Actor, model and dupping artiste Manikandan wins! 9 /9.
  • Gayathri - 8/9

  • Ammani - 2/9 (c'mon , I expected a better score from you)
The answers:

3. Metti Oli Shanti also called as Snake Shanti

4. Chetan the great - Thinks he is kamalagaasan... thinks! (nenapudan pozhapa kedukum)

6. Manager Cheena - S Ve Shekhar drama troupe permanent entry

7. Poovilangu Kuyili - of 'Nila adhu vaanathu mela' fame - yet another item number who acts as a Mylapore maami in a madisar with 'yendddi , vangoonna, settha vaadi ' kind of dialaaks

8. Kalaimamani T K Shanmugasunthari - Remember her from Thillana mohanambal with the vettalaipotti? She is singer T K Kala's mother...oops! Kalaimamani T K Kala's mother

9. Gayathri a.ka 'Metti oli' Saro - Sources say that her per episode consumption of glycerin in Metti Oli was close to 20 bottles. {for peethal's sake - she lives in the same area as I}

You forgot to mention that Metti oli Gayathri acted as Parvathi in Siva puranam and ended up marrying the "Sivan" or "Shiva". I hope they are still together.
