Only by serving in Cinema, I can pay tribute to Balachander

Great director K.Balachander passed away recently, the actors and actresses of south film industries and politicians have paid homage to the director. The body was carried from Mylapore to Besant Nagar, and the 6 k.ms was covered on foot by the fellow attendees at five in the evening.

Kamal Hassan a pupil of Balachander was busy with the post-production process of 'Utthama Villain' in America and wasn't able to see the great director before the funeral. But, the actor has said that being busy in the film shoots that has made the actor miss the funeral was the only tribute he could pay to the great director.

The actor has posted a video on his Facebook page, and the speech is as follows:

There's no one in Tamil cinema with such a dedication, except K.Balachander. He has directed more than hundred films and has also given life to hundreds of actors by introducing them, and I am one such actor.

And, his role in 'Uthama Villian' was based on my insistence, and that is such an important event in my life. And, I don't know that for how many things I have to say thanks to the great director. 

I don't believe in festivities, and I couldn't attend the funeral of the great director, as I was busy in a film shoot. Being busy in the field which I learned from him is the only tribute I could give him. The voice of K.Balachander will reflect on the works of his students, and its my duty to do my part.
