Not seen for decades the memorable actress of South India Kanchana taking the mike made a flood of appreciation on Dr.B.Saroja Devi at the KFCC felicitation morning on Wednesday.
‘Dr Devi is the unifying force of South India’. She is the great pride of our fraternity. At the beginning days of my career the AVM and Gemini film makers would use to give the name of B.Sarojadevi as the example of perfect artist. In fact I was told to follow B.Saroja Devi when I started acting. Actress Kanchana went down the memory lane and recalled her days in Indian Airlines job and meeting the beautiful actress like Lalitha Padmini and dreaming about becoming an actress. When I was a student I saw B.Saroja Devi in ‘Kalyanaparisu’ with two pony tail and beautiful looks is still afresh in me said Kanchana who claimed that she is ‘Ajji’ today. Dr. Devi can emote like a child too even at this age and stage complimented the veteran actress. For the great social work of Dr.Devi the actress Kanchana thanked her good nature.
Dr.Devi replied to this honor from her colleague I could not study but Kanchanaji is highly educated and I used to know her when she was Vasundhara. It is my fortune that I got the doctorate without proper education she said. Another contemporary and long time friend of Dr.B.Saroja Devi actress Krishnakumari received the memento from Dr.Devi on this occasion.
