CHENNAI: On Friday, social media was buzzing with memories and conversations about Google’s doodle of Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan, commemorating his 93rd birth anniversary.
The social media handles of Bengaluru-based freelance graphic designer Noopur Rajesh Choksi, who designed this artwork, have been flooded with appreciation messages from all over the world, including Ganesan’s grandson, actor Vikram Prabhu.
“He said that he resonated with the artwork and I’ve done a good job paying tribute to his grandfather; it was such an amazing feeling. I couldn’t have asked for a better compliment,” says Choksi.
She didn’t grow up watching Ganesan’s movies, but when she was approached for the project, instead of watching his movies, she reached out to his ardent fans and family members.
