Bharathiraja returns his Padma award

Post by swatika on Sun Apr 26, 2009 9:09 pm

The Tamil film fraternity showed their solidarity in the Sri Lankan Tamil issue yesterday (April 23, 2009). The event witnessed some fiery speeches from the film personalities. Notable among them were directors Bharathiraja, Ameer, Cheran, lyricist Thamarai, and actor Sathyaraj.
A thoroughly distressed Bharathiraja went a step further and said that he would return the Padma Shree award that was awarded to him by the Government of India. He also made arrangements for its return immediately. The director showed his Padma award to those present at the venue before disclosing his intention to send it back.
