Kalaimamani awards for Dr Sarojadevi 

CHENNAI: At a time when the city is basking in the success of its own Mozart’s victory at the Oscars, it is raining awards here with the Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday announcing Kalaimamani awards for Saroja Devi and others who have made a significant contribution to their respective fields. The awards are given by the Tamil Nadu Iyal Isai Nataka Mantram. Aaduthurai-based Sree Sankaranarayana Sabha has been selected for the best theatre group and Tamil Isai Mantram in Thiruvaiyaru the best art institution. Some of the recipients of the award expressed their joy and excitement.

For Saroja Devi, the award came as a heartening recognition from Tamil fans and industry. “When Kamal Hassan called me and informed this, it was unbelievable. I never expect awards. But, every time I receive it, it feels great for I am being honoured for doing what I love. This award is special to me and I think it is purely by the grace of God. It is also wonderful to see so many young talents being recognised through this award,” she said.


Aadhaven team celiberates Kalimamani awards winners

The Aadhavan team today took some time off from their shooting to felicitate Saroja Devi and Nayanthara. Both of them have been named in the State Government's Kalaimamani awardees list. The unit, along with producer Udhayanidhi Stalin presented bouquets to Saroja Devi and Nayanthara. With two members of their lead cast being honored by the State government, it certainly looks like a fortuitous beginning for the Aadhavan team.
