Here is a chance to see Rajinikanth, Chiranjeevi, Mohanlal, Ambareesh and many other stars from the golden period of 80s under one roof. Yes, celebrities from all four South Indian film industries who ruled the roost in the 1980s will gather at a private event, labelled Evergreen 80s.
The show which will have top actors, producers and directors from all four South Indian film industries, is organized by Rayanne, daughter of actress-producer Radhika.

When asked about tribute performances by today's stars, she said, "Simbu is doing a tribute to Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan, Neetu will do for Srirpiya, Bindhu Madhavi for Silk, and Namitha for other glamour dolls of the 80s. Actress Madhubala will also be performing a dance sequence for the first time. Meanwhile, Kovai Sarala and Mano Bala will be staging a scripted drama."
The show will also have all the yesteryear celebrities shake a leg towards the end to finish off things on a perfect note. Rayanne also said that the event will witness a tribute to director K Balachander, she said, "He's been the godfather for many of these stars. We will be having an audio visual on what all he did for cinema and anecdotes will be shared by the stars."
