At a recent dance program conducted at Nataraja Temple in Chidambaram, the actress of yesteryear. Venniradai Nirmala, spoke to the media about the art of Bharatha Natyam and interestingly, about Dhanush too.
"Bharatha Natyam helps enhance physical strength and invigorates the one who practices it. Forgetting this, our people go for Western dance. Even during these times, few among the younger generation are volunteering to learn Bharatha Nattityam. During those days, actors and actresses were put into he arena with good movie stories, but as of now, young directors create good stories and select new faces for the movie. This has received tremendous welcome among fans. One could quote movies as Autograph, Mynaa and Vaagai Soodava as examples. I desire doing different characters. That way, actor Dhanush does various roles, so I desire doing a movie starring Dhanush."
