The auditorium witnessed a full house scene after a long time. More than 3000 ardent fans from Chennai, Kovai and Madurai attended the function.
Sathyaraj told, 'MGR was a rare phenomenon in both politics and cinema. He is an unparalleled man and a great all-rounder in the field in which he was involved. I'm sure that his centenary celebrations would touch a new peak in the country'.
T.M.Soundararajan was honoured in this function. Manorama, who joined MGR in 26 films, remembered her glorious days with the 'Master of Cinema'.
Lakshman Sruthi orchestra presented the super hit songs of MGR till late night, and the entire crowd stayed back in the auditorium for the concluding song too.
