Legendary actor Kamal Hassan and choreographer turned Prabhu Deva formally launched dance master Raghuram"s Narthanashala a couple of days ago.
After lighting the Kuthuvilakku Kamal travelled back in time and memories. "This hall (Raghuram"s practice hall) is where I rehearsed many of my dance sequences," he said.
Raghuram said, "We will teach the students all forms of dance — bharatham, kathakali, western, tap, jazz, and even mayilattam and other folk arts. In my opinion, young boys have started learning Bharatham after seeing Kamal in Salangai Oli and after Prabhu Deva"s entry, several youngsters have started taking dance seriously."
Raghuram's daughter and former actress Gayathri is the in charge for the school.
