Director’s drama at Tamil conference
Published in India Glitz
The Tamil Nadu Thirai Iyakkunargal Sangam, the apex body of Tamil film directors, has decided to support the World Classical Tamil Conference organised by the State government in Coimbatore in June 2010.
Announcing this to reporters in Chennai Wednesday, secretary of the association R K Selvamani said, “We want to stage a historical play at the conference which will reflect the Tamil culture and ethos.”
A number of themes for the drama have been shortlisted by the association and the final decision would be taken by the Tamil Nadu government, office bearers of the association said. They also welcomed actors to be part of the project.
Besides, the directors association has also planned to record the proceedings of the international event to screen it as a five-minute capsule in cinema halls. “We would like to take to the people the noble attempt being made by Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for the growth of Tamil,” they said.
It may be recalled that members of the Tamil Film Producers Council, the South Indian Artistes Association and the Film Employees Federation of South India expressed willingness last week to support the meet through cultural events.
