Tamil Nadu CM announces Government will organise grand film awa
CHENNAI: A grand awards function would be organised to honour film artistes and technicians, Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa announced in the assembly on Friday.
The chief minister made the announcement in response to DMK MLA Vagai Chandrasekar's statement that no awards function had been organised in the last five years of the AIADMK regime.
"It was during the DMK regime that awards for small screen actors and technicians were given," he said.
Reacting to the statement, Jayalalithaa said, "DMK failed to organise awards for the police force during the last three years of its previous regime. The awards function for the film fraternity was not organised for various reasons. To make up for that, a grand awards function will be organised soon."
