“The main purpose of the event is to revive and innovate something which has never been done in such a large scale. Drama used to be the staple diet of Tamilians before the advent of television, so-called big superstars of today have all been an active part of drama at one stage – from K Balachander, legendary comedian Nagesh to MGR,” said B Shankar, CEO, Fourth Dimension.
