CHENNAI: A movie depicting my life and the difficult path that I undertook on the road to achievement would be well received and run for 100 days, said Justice CS Karnan on Sunday. Karnan was the chief guest at an event where the Rajasthani Association of Tamil Nadu (RAJAT) distributed scholarships worth `32 lakh to students from under-privileged backgrounds pursuing graduate degrees in MBBS, Polytechnic, B Pharma, BDS, Arts, Science, Commerce and other subjects.
Addressing well known Tamil film hero Srikkanth (of Nanban and Parthiban Kanavu fame) and upcoming comedian ‘Parotta’ Soori (of Vennila Kabadi Kuzhu fame) who were also guests of honour at the event, Justice Karnan invited them to visit his home town to research for a movie on his life. “A biopic made on me will be very interesting and society must know my path to success,” he said, in a bid to convince the cine stars.
He also lauded the Rajasthanis as a community for their simple way of life, giving nature and regular donations to the poor for education and medical purposes. “I urge other such associations to donate and make similar contributions,” he said.
The other dignitaries present at the event included businessman and educationist Gopal Agarwal, president of RAJAT K Subhashchand Ranka, general secretary Praveen Kumar Tatia, chairman of the scholarship committee Narendra Srisrimal and managing trustee of Rajasthani Educational Trust S Padamchand Chahajer.
Speaking to loud cheers from the students assembled in the audience, comedian Soori lauded the distribution of scholarships and pointed out that the Jains of the Rajasthani community were the ‘Chains running the wheel of the Tamil film industry.’
