Raadan Media Works Chairperson and Creative Head Radhika Sarath Kumar said that she is ready to produce content for Kalaignar TV if asked by CM Karunanidhi. After the rift between the Maran's and the Karunanidhi family surfaced, the DMK boycotted the Sun Network and introduced a new channel Kalaignar TV. Raj TV will run the new TV channel.
Reacting to this development, Radhika Sarath Kumar had a meeting with Chief Minister Karunanidhi - their first meeting after husband Sarath Kumar quit the party. After the meeting, she said that she met him to invite him for her father M.R Radha's centenary celebration function. Only later did she confess that she approached the CM with proposal to produce content for Kalaignar TV.
When we spoke to her after getting to know of this, she said all this is true. "I am ready to produce content for Kalaignar TV.I offered to do so during my meeting with CM Karunanidhi. Raadan Media Works, being a corporate company, first usually gets the exclusive rights to produce content for any channel that it strikes a deal with. I will meet Sun Network chairman Kalanithi Maran and then tell the media how things are."
When asked about her exit from Sun Network, she remarked that these kind of discussion were unnecessary at the moment as they had a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the network. If Sun Network cancels the deal then they will take a decision on what to do next." In other good news for Raadan Media Networks, its share prices reached its peak on Wednesday, increasing from Rs 6.25 to Rs 8.35 after she met with the CM. It is now at its all time high face value of one rupee.
