Golden Jubilee celebrations

News and rumours of Kamal’s Golden Jubilee celebrations have been going around ever since he mentioned it in the Unnaippol Oruvan press meet. We have been resisting posting about it since details are still not clear, even though August 12 is just around the corner.

  • The event will be called “Kalathil Kaaloondri 50” (”50 years after setting foot on the terrain”, shall we say?).
  • Initially, the function was supposed to happen in July; now, it looks like it will be at the end of the month, followed by the release of Unnaippol Oruvan / Eenadu in September.
  • The possible venue is Island Grounds in Chennai, as it would be able to accommodate that hordes of fans expected.
  • Several Chief Ministers and big movie stars are expected to grace the function.
  • There is also some confusion on which television channel will be involved. It was supposed to be Vijay TV, but now it has changed hands to Kalaignar TV apparently due to political pressure. See reports from Thatstamil and Thenaali.com (1 | 2).
  • There was a rumour that Walt Disney would be sponsoring the event. The Walt Disney connection was because they were the producers of The 19th Step, which doesn’t seem to happening now.
  • A section of fans wanted Kamal to get into politics and use this occasion for that. He strongly rejected the idea.
  • Some other fans meanwhile plan to release a music album.

Web-sites like Glamsham.com, IndiaGlitz and Behindwoods have started featuring write-ups for the occasion. Also read pieces and reports from Webdunia (1 | 2), IndiaGlitz, Thenaali.com and ChennaiOnline.

Meanwhile, hectic activity is going on in the Kamal Haasan Orkut group. Featured here is one of the graphics that was posted there by Shankar ‘Ulagam’ (of Lyrix in Pix fame).
