By: Settu Shankar Friday, August 10, 2007 Cheran is the one actor who is continuously blasting the selection procedure of films for National Awards. Whenever he gets a chance, he criticises that most of the awards go to the artists from the Hindi belt. But I hope hereafter Cheran will be the first man in the league that sings paeans for the National Awards Committee!
Yes... this time the jury of the award committee have shut his big mouth with 2 major awards!
Cheran's hit film Thavamai Thavamirunthu, acted and directed by him has bagged an award in the category of Best Family Welfare. Another award has given to his film Aadum Koothu directed by the veteran director T.V. Chandran.
When asking about these awards, Cheran told: "I dedicate this award to my ardent Tamil fans. These awards will encourage me in giving more good films like Thavamai Thavamirunthu. I knew it well enough while the movie was still under production, that it would win at least one award at the national level. However, I'm still a little disappointed with the selection of the jury. I expected an award for Rajkiran in the best supporting actor category. But it didn't happen. I hope my future films will be able to achieve this feat for him".
