The two stalwarts of the Tamil film industry, Superstar Rajinikanth and Ulaga Nayagan Kamal Haasan will be present at the star cricket tourney that is scheduled to be held on January 6 in Malaysia. The tournament is being held to raise funds for the South Film Artistes Association building that is being constructed at T Nagar in Chennai.
It may be mentioned that a star cricket tourney was held last year as well, to raise funds for the building and it was a massive success. Revealing that several stars apart from Rajini and Kamal would be there at the event’s closing ceremony, Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council chairman Vishal said that more details would be disclosed soon.
Speaking about this at the recently concluded Nadigar Sangam General Body meeting, Vishal said that apart from cricket, various other events will also be conducted to raise funds. Karthi, the Treasurer of the Nadigar Sangam had said that a Star Night is being planned in Malaysia which will be replete with cultural events such as dance and music by well-known film stars. He added that the MGR centenary year will be celebrated by the Nadigar Sangam in a grand manner as well.
It may be noted that Rajinikanth is currently busy with the Pa Ranjith directorial Kaala. His 2.O, which is the sequel to Endhiran, will be hitting the silver screens in January. Directed by Shankar, the film is produced by A Subhashkaran under the banner Lyca Productions on a budget costing more than Rs 400 crores.
Kamal Haasan, on the other hand, is busy with Sabaash Naidu in which he is playing the lead role apart from wielding the megaphone.
