My directors are my teachers - Nasser - Event Story

Jun 17, 2013

On June 1st, the music of Nalanum Nandhiniyum and Sutta Kathai was released in the Great Victoria Hall, Geneva. As a follow up to it, Sutta Kathai’s music was re-launched in a smaller scale for the Chennai audience at the Satyam Cinemas.

The audio was launched by Nasser, director Vijay and Studio Green KE Gnanavelraja, amidst the presence of  CV Kumar, actor Ramakrishnan, JS Nandhini, producer Ashok G Loth, Amma Creations T Siva, Karu Palaniappan, comedian Sathish, actor Balaji, actor Venky, Lakshmi Priya, director SuBu and composer K.

While addressing the gathering, director Vijay said that he was there at the event to cheer for actor Balaji, who has been a part of some of director’s prominent projects like Poi Solla Porom, Madrasapattinam and Thaandavam. “While working with him in Poi Solla Porom, I never knew he could perform like this,” added Vijay, looking at Balaji’s performance in Sutta Kathai.

Director Vijay also honoured Nasser with a bouquet and revealed that he always makes sure that he designs a character for the veteran in every film of his.

Nasser was as polite as ever during his speech. The actor said that he considers all his directors, experienced or newcomers, as his teachers. “That’s how I maintain a good rapport with them,” explained the veteran.

One of the leads of Sutta Kathai and a dear friend of director Vijay, Balaji took the podium and thanked all his well wishers and Vijay in particular. “One friend introduced me to TV and another to Radio. But it was AL Vijay who identified and brought me in front of the camera,” said Balaji. Usually a jovial person, Balaji turned all sentimental during his little talk. “It was Father’s day, yesterday. I lost mine a long back. Since then it was my mother who was my pillar of support in everything I pursued. She deserves all the credits for what I am today,” said a visibly moved  Balaji.

The two producers who never think twice to fund new comers, CV Kumar and KE Gnanavelraja, were also present at the event. The latter actually said that CV Kumar is a part of his family. “Kumar taught me to support new ideas,” said KE Gnanavelraja.

The last one to take the dais was Ravindar Chandrasekaran, the head of Libra Productions. Being with the United Nations for years, he said that he came to his home land to pursue his passion, which is cinema. “I came all the way here for Nalanum Nandhiniyum. My people were against my decision. I did few mistakes too. But it happens while following our dream,” started the producer of Sutta Kathai, Nalanum nandhiniyum and few others.

He also announced that he will be taking up eight more projects along with some of his friends in the month of August. Ravindar thanked all the well wishers for their support and wrapped up the event.
