When any actor receives the national award, the highest recognition in the country, it’s a matter of great pride and honour. No one can forget that day in their lives.
For Chiyaan Vikram it was no different when receiving the national award for Pithamagan. But the most unforgettable memory for him was when the CM Kalaignar Karunanidhi called him up to congratulate him.
“I will never forget the moment. The first call I got after receiving the award was from the CM congratulating me”,said the actor at the AIFEC event held to honour the Kalaignar’s contribution to cinema at the Nehru Stadium. “ I admire his work. Even to this day he continues to write for cinema and he has kept pace, adapting his writing for every generation over the decades,” said Vikram.
