It was a pleasant surprise for some of the yesteryear actors of Tamil cinema on Thursday, when they were invited to lunch with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa
The Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, who is herself from the cinema industry, wanted to catch up with her ex-colleagues and hence arranged for the luncheon meet at her Poes Garden residence.Popular actors of the 1960s like Anjali Devi, Sowcar Janaki, Saroja Devi, Rajashree, Jamuna, Sukumari and Sachu were present. Also present at the apolitical reunion were veteran singer P Suseela and actor-dramatist-journalist Cho Ramaswamy.
During the meeting, heaps of delectable nostalgia was served along with the most delicious food in silver dishes. “The spread was huge and the Chief Minister played perfect hostess,” said Sachu.
