Ilayaraja's prophecy has come true!

It is a well known fact that up-and-coming actor Appukutty has won National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor for the year 2011.

The then unknown and under-recognised actor was well recognized following his performance in Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu. His role as Azhagarsami in Azhagar samiyin Kudhirai (ASK) was praised by film critics and fetched him the National Award.

But a legendary musician in Tamil cinema industry, almost a year ago, had correctly envisaged that Appukutty's performance in ASK would be praised and recognized well.

It is none other than music maestro Ilayaraja.

On the day of Azhagar Saamiyin Kudirai's audio launch i.e on 16 March 2011 which was held at Sathyam Cinemas Ilayaraja told the audiences that both ASK and Appukutty as Azhagarsami would be well received by audiences and critics alike. He was also amazed by the amount of applause hero Appukutty received when he was called to the stage and said that only superstar Rajinikanth could get such a response.

Raja was also quick to point out that Appukutty cannot do what Rajini can do but at the same time Rajini cannot do the roles of Appukutty.

It can also be noted that ASK won the National Award for being the Best Wholesome Entertainer.

Long live Ilayaraja, his music and his prophecy.
