TTD gets dubbing rights for Karunanidhi’s Ramanujar serial


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:

Both Houses of Parliament were adjourned for the day without transacting any business on Wednesday as a mark of respect to former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK leader M. Karunanidhi who died in Chennai on Tuesday.

The presiding officers of the two Houses made obituary references and paid homage to the 94-year-old political stalwart.

Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan described him as a visionary and a true leader of the masses and said his death “is an irreparable loss to the country and marks the end of an era”.

The members stood in silence for a short while.

In the obituary reference, Mahajan said Karunanidhi, an astute administrator, in his “long and illustrious political career” showcased his “admirable leadership qualities and worked relentlessly for the cause of the people, particularly the marginalised and the downtrodden sections of the society.

“A multifaceted persona, Karunanidhi rose to become the most celebrated screenwriter in the Tamil film industry, using the cinematic medium to deliver his political ideas to the masses. The 1952 box office hit ‘Parasakthi’, in particular, was a turning point both in Tamil cinema and for Karunanidhi,” she said.

In the Rajya Sabha, Chairman M. Venkaiah Naidu said Karunanidhi was actively engaged in social and public life.
