Perhaps for the first time after he was caught in the ‘Beep Song’ controversy, Anirudh has made a public appearance at the IIFA Utsavam event in Hyderabad on Sunday night.
The young composer, who was adjudged as the best music director for ‘Kaththi’, said, “I should not bother about controversies. I am happy I did 11 film in 4 years. Sodhanai illamal vazhkai illai.”
The two day event celebrates and honours talent across the four southern film industries — Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. In his address, Kamal Haasan said, “the awards night stresses unity in diversity. Thanks Hyderabad for helping Chennai flood victims.”
Speaking to reporters, Nadigar Sangam president Nasser said, “On behalf of the entire Tamil film industry, I thank IIFA Utsavam for showing their solidarity (with Chennai flood victims) and postponing the event. We were touched.”
Dhanush was presented the best lyricist award for ‘Maari’. Madhavan, Shriya, Taapsee Pannu, Mamta Mohandas and Priyamani among others were present.
