Raghava Lawrence - Icon of Social Responsibility on Cinema

Presenter - U. Sagayam IAS


Winner - Raghava Lawrence


Lawrence's speech - "I am very happy that this award was given to the human in me, apart from the field of cinema. By receiving this award, I feel like doing even more good work.


I am so happy to receive this award from Sagayam sir. He has been doing a lot of great work socially. I request the people present here. When the floods hit Chennai we saw its impact. The delta region has been hit even worse than Chennai.


I wanted to help but only after going there in person, I saw that the work cannot be done by a single person. I came to Chennai to request people I know for help. I also requested Behindwoods for help. Behindwoods has given Rs 2.5 lakh. I am living off of people's money and now I have to return back the favour. Even the least can do a lot."

*Saravana Selvarathinam, Behindwoods and Lawrence contributed 2.5 L each.
