TIRUVANANTHAPURAM : Prathidhwani, the socio-cultural and welfare organisation of IT employees of Technopark, is felicitating ‘ex-techies’ who have made it big in cinema. Rahul Riji Nair, director of the state award-winning ‘Ottamurivelicham’ and others with an IT background who were behind the making of this film, will be felicitated at a function on Wednesday at Technopark.
