Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister M Karunanidhi seems to be drawn for the welfare of cinema these days.
Just recently he had praised Gemini Ganesan on the release of a biographical CD at the 90th birth anniversary celebrations of the late actor in Chennai.
Now we came to know he has presented an amount Rs 10 lakhs to the National Film Development Corporation (NFDC), which was instrumental in producing a film on Dr. Ambedkar that starred Mammootty in the lead. The film is a documentation of life and times of Dr. Ambedkar and Mollywood superstar Mammooty has tried his best in the venture as according to him it is one of the most important projects in his life.
Reportedly the reason for supporting the actor is the film screening that will happen in the state itself.
It’s good to see recognition from politicians. We appreciate Karunanidhi’s honest efforts.
