Actor – director Parthiban paid tribute to director Rudhraiya, who passed away recently. At the audio launch of Tihar, the actor brought a huge photograph of Rudhraiya with him, which he then handed over to Ramesh Kanna and Perarasu. “In the industry, we are guilty of writing off hugely talented artistes when they don’t continue making films. People like RC Sakthi, Sridhar and Rudhraiya were ignored and still are ignored by the people, as they haven’t done anything new. Due recognition is being denied to them,” claimed Parthiban. He urged the members of the Tamil Nadu Director’s Union, of which Rudhraiya was not a member, to give the photograph pride of place in their office.
Perarasu, Joint Secretary of the union has promised to undertake efforts to install Rudhraiya’s photo in their office in Valasarawakkam.
