Veteran Director Bharathiraja is the one who gave a new identity to Tamil cinema. The 6 time National award winner and director of 40 + movies has attended an audio lauch event recently.
While wishing the best of luck to the newcomers, he replied to the request which was made by so many people at the event. People out here kept saying that, I must make a comeback and start my second innings, all I want to say is, I’ve never gone out of Cine industry and I am all set to direct 3 films in the next 2 years.
He adds, it is so pleasant to hear so many youngsters out here address me as ‘Dad’ out of their sheer respect towards me. But in turn I request them to stop there itself and do not address me as their grand dad in future. The digital revolution has changed the face of film making and science have advanced so much too.
I have been taking rest and also learning the scientifical advancements in movie making. All I want to stress is, though the technology has advanced so much please do not forget the roots which have brought you here. All the young directors must stick to their culture and try to frame them as much as they can.
‘Annakodi’ was the last movie from the legendary director which released last year.
