Birthday celebrations planned in silence had Director KB cut a cake and the first piece was given to KB by Director Bharathiraja.

He signed off with confidence that the duo acting together will again create a landmark in the industry and surpass expectations. Happiness abounding he said, “We have touched peaks in direction and sure to do so again in acting too.” Behindwoods prays for his health and happiness making his dreams come true.
