Simbu and Trisha in controversy
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
May 30, 2007
This year’s list of Kalaimamani awards is out amidst the usual controversies and heated debates against the decisions. One of the main issues that are snowballing into gigantic proportion is the exclusion of Tamil Theatre artists. The members and artists of the theatre club are vociferous against the decision of excluding them in this year’s Kalaimamani awards.

The ex-leader of the Madurai Tamil Nadu Drama Artist Association, Mr. Kalaimani commenting on the issue said: “the exclusion of drama artists is a big disappointment and a shame that our work is not given recognition.” He also added “when Trisha and Simbu, who can hardly speak a ten minute dialogue continuously is being honored with the award, why not us? We talk, dance, sing and play music at the same time without any retakes.”

Tamil Nadu Drama and Music Association Secretary, Poet Illaiyabarathy has asked them not to comment on the selection and also added how none of the performance of the drama artist is award worthy this year. The leader of the Association, Mr. Raama. Narayanan, told the press that the exclusion of drama artists is a worrying factor and has promised that he would speak to the Chief Minister Dr. Kalignar Karunanidhi, regarding the issue. Hope the artists finally get their due recognition.
