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.
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".
