Present along with her in the office were film chamber President C.Kalyan, secretaries Ravikottarakkra and L.Suresh, representing the Film Chamber. After the inauguration, the CM said that it was an honor for her to be able to inaugurate the new facilities because the Film Chamber was originally inaugurated by Arignar Anna many years back and that MGR too had a long association with the chamber. She said that Tamil cinema was now marching towards 100 years and wished that the journey should never come to a stop.
