Chennai: A group of officials from Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanams (TTD) met DMK president M Karunanidhi, a declared atheist, on Thursday.
According to the source, the TTD team, led by its chairman C. Krishnamurthy, met Karunanidhi to get the rights for “Ramanujar”, the story about Vaishnavite saint Ramanujam, written by the DMK leader and telecast by his family-owned Kalaignar TV.
TTD is believed to have got the rights for dubbing the serial, hugely popular amongst the Vaishnavites in the state, in Telugu to be telecast on its television channel SVBC.
It is learnt that members of the TTD team recited Srinivasa Gadyam – Sanskrit blessings of Lord Venkateswara or Lord Balaji – at Karunanidhi’s Gopalapuram residence and presented him with a shawl and the famed Tirupathi Laddu. (IANS)(Photo: www.videoparades.com)
