Star studded city

From talkies to digital filming, Indian cinema has grown in technology and reach. This year marks the centenary of the silver screen that has mesmerised people of all ages. To commemorate this, the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) organised a three-day event. The venue: Chennai; the state capital which adorned its on-screen heroes as chief ministers. Actors, directors and other cine artists from Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Tamil film industries gathered amongst fanfare. Adding pomp was the President of India and the chief ministers of four states who attended the function. While the history and milestone of Tamil and Malayalam cinema was elucidated the first day, the second day showcased the Telugu and Kannada movie’s history. Apart from star-studded performance on the third day, 50 stamp heads of film personalities have been released. Tamil cinema is the dream destination for many. From rags to riches, the off-screen stories of many actors are as spicy as the on-screen tales. The love for cinemas that the Tamils share has helped the industry to move towards more practical films and has encouraged youngsters to experiment with new genres. For the state with its politics and cinema entwined, Tamil Nadu seems a perfect host for the  Centenary Celebration.
