‘Govt. Dignitaries Not Attending Sivaji’s Memorial Event’: Prabhu Writes To I&B Ministry

Actor Prabhu is incensed at the lack of respect shown by the State Government towards his late father. A memorial to the legendary actor Sivaji Ganesan is all set to be inaugurated on October 1, to mark the birth anniversary of the actor.

“Usually an event of this scale should be attended by the CM and high-ranking dignitaries. But I heard that not even the Deputy CM is attending. This is a disgrace and is a severe insult to the name and fame of my father. He did a lot for Tamil language and culture. Is this the way we treat great artists?”


Prabhu is of the opinion that things would have been different had Jayalalitha been alive. “She wouldn’t have allowed things to go on like this. She would have made this a huge event and invited dignitaries from all over,” Prabhu said.

To this end, Prabhu has written to the Information and Broadcasting Ministry.

“This memorial was very close to late CM Jayalalitha’s heart. We request the State Government and I&B Ministry to help make this event a grand success,” Prabhu said.
