“I seriously needed a hit at this time” – DhanushPublished: February 16, 2015
Dhanush’s career graph prior to the release of Velai Illa Pattadhaari wasn’t really a commendable one as his movies didn’t perform well in box office. With a surprising gear up, his 25th film VIP turned to be the year’s best blockbuster with huge profit for producers, distributors and theatre owners. Last evening, the actor along with his director Velraj and music director Anirudh walked on the red carpet of Edison Awards to receive their honours.
Dhanush on receiving the ‘Best Actor Award’ gladly thanked everyone uttering, “I seriously needed a hit at this time and everyone made my dream come true landing me at the safe zone. I am thankful to director Velraj and music director Anirudh for being completely supportive during this critical juncture of my career.” Anirudh was awarded as the ‘Best Music Director’ for his stunning composition for Vijay’s Kaththi and Velraj as ‘Best Debut Director’ for the same film.
Best Actress award wasn’t given to anyone and Catherina Tresa won the ‘Best Female Debut Actress Award’ for an impeccable performance in ‘Madras’.
