South Indian International Movie Awards (SIIMA) 2013, which was
held in Sharjah, on September 12 and 13, saw many South Indian
artists under the same roof. The function was attended not only by
Kannada stalwarts, but also by some of the big names of Tamil,
Telugu, Malayalam and Bollywood film industries.
Kannada superstar Shivaraj Kumar, who won the Best Actor
award for his performance in the movie Shiva, was praised
by none other than Tamil superstar Dhanush.
Dhanush said, "I am overwhelmed with Shivaraj Kumar's character,
though he is a superstar, he is a no attitude person. He respects
his co-artists and technicians on the set. It is very rare to see
such a personality in cinema industry and I admire him. I would
like to be a down to earth person just like him."
Dhanush bagged three awards in the event - Best Actor, Best
Lyricist and Best Playback singer (Male) for the movie 3.
He also thanked SIIMA 2013, for felicitating him with actors like
Shivaraj Kumar and Mohanlal.
Dhanush said, "I am very thankful to the organisers of SIIMA
2013, for felicitating me in the category, which includes the
superstars and legends like Shivaraj Kumar and Mohanlal."
