Ameer heaps praise on Durai Dayanidhi

Director–turned-actor Ameer, who always speaks from his heart, praised producer Durai Dayanidhi for making films by patronizing those from Madurai as well as for glorifying the rich traditions of the city though his films. The appreciation came during the audio-launch of ‘Thoonga Nagaram’ produced by Dayanidhi’s Cloud Nine Movies.

The audio-launch, held at the Sathyam Cinemas, witnessed a huge turnout of natives from Madurai and they had a field day, whistling and clapping at regular intervals. Gaurav, the director of ‘Thoonga Nagaram’, happens to be a native of Madurai like directors Ameer, Sasikumar and Chidambaram Chettiyar (owner of Kamala Cinemas), who had come to wish the film a success.

Incidentally, Durai Dayanidhi also happens to be hailing from Madurai. As if awaiting such an opportunity, produer-director Lingusamy too confided that though he was from Thanjavur, ‘at heart’, he was from Madurai. Ameer ‘alleged’ during his speech that his friends Sasukumar and Samuthirakkani had ‘stolen’ half-portion each of the story of his ‘Kutravaali’ for their films ‘Subramaniapuram’ and ‘Nadodigal’ respectively.

I’m now left with nothing but the title alone,” he said jocularly and added that “In order to ensure that directors hailing from Madurai shouldn’t suffer for want of a good producer, it appears that God has sent a helpful producer too from Madurai in the form of Durai Dayanidhi.

Sasikumar, who spoke after Ameer, appealed to him in a friendly manner not to create a ‘wedge’ of ‘Madurai’ or ‘Chennai’ between directors who have been remaining close and friendly!
