Actor Y Gee Mahendra might not be acting as much in films as he did in the 80s but he is still going strong as a theatre artist. The actor, who is related to Superstar Rajinikanth, also has a relatively unknown talent — whistling!
The actor feels that while whistling is a pick-me-up, it also promotes feelings of happiness. It is impossible to be miserable and depressed whilst whistling. He followed this strategy of whistling and has compiled a music album comprising the compositions of Mellisai Mannargal Viswananthan-Ramamoorthy. Whistle Away Your Memories, a new music album compiled by Y Gee Mahendra, was released recently by MSV himself while maestro Ilaiyaraaja received the audio CD.
Interestingly, we hear it was Rajinikanth who gave him the idea of bringing out an album showcasing his whistling talent.
