Santhanam’s now in a Sivaji film remake
From stage to screen
Paritchaikku Neramaachu was adapted from a stage play written by Vietman Veedu Sundaram. It was staged first by Y Gee Mahendra's drama troupe and became a success. Impressed by it, Muktha V Srinivasan made it into a film. Sivaji Ganesan's role as Nadathur Narasimhachari, an orthodox Brahmin, was much appreciated.

‘Permit unveiling of Sivaji Ganesan’s statue’
Sivaji Ganesan was simple and courageous
The governor, while addressing the gathering, was all praise for Sivaji Ganesan. He recollected the days he spent with the actor while campaigning in Andhra Pradesh. “We were good friends, even though we mostly met for political reasons,” he added. About Sivaji’s acting, the Governor said, “There wasn't a single character he couldn't do and none can do a character as perfect as he could. His simplicity and courage were his USPs. I would say, he along with other legends like MGR, NTR and NS Krishnan were the greatest contributors of Indian Cinema.”
The Sivaji family took the opportunity to honour veterans like K Balachander, actress Kanchana, and Thavil exponent ‘Valayapatti’ AR Subramaniyam. A sum of Rs 50,000 was also donated towards the Sivaji Prabhu Charitable Trust.
