Award shows are increasingly thinking of out of box ideas to make their initiative interesting and novel. The long running Edison Awards made a splash this past Sunday at their 12th edition, by honoring the most socially responsible fan groups (among Tamil heroes), along with their other regular awards. They picked Suriya and Karthi’s fan clubs for their terrific volunteering, relief and rehabilitation efforts in the aftermath of the Gaja cyclone that ravaged Tamil Nadu late last year.
Some important representatives of the fans club attended the event and proudly collected their award. News of this award went viral in no time, and was trending far and wide on social media due to the unique, 'first time ever' nature of the award.
Rajsekar Pandian, one of the important office bearers in Suriya’s fan club and also a very close friend of the star, also attended the event to cheer up the fan club members in their winning moment. Rajsekar proudly said that the fans have been really selfless and sincere in their efforts towards social work, and are in fact still working hard to ensure that the affected people return to a semblance of normalcy in their life. Rajsekar is also the director & co-producer of Suriya’s production house 2D Entertainment, and collected a few other awards for their blockbuster production Kadai Kutty Singam.
