  • Alas! It was a great disappointment for Tamilnadu as the talent of the cine artists was overlooked and recognition was not given to them in the form of national awards like Padma Awards. There are many big legends like M.S.V, Chinmayee, and Nasser, to name a few whose worth was not recognised. Hope in future the Hon’able President’s office will consider this issue.
