RIP: K.Balachander - The King Maker !

Tamil Cinema has faced many unparalled losses in the year 2014. The great - Balu Mahendra, Filmmaker Rama Narayanan, SS Rajendran ….. and now the Iyakunar Sigaram - KB (K. Balachander) :(

I am not a big fan of KB. But still admire his ability to pick new people and in nurturing their talent. He’s not only a unique director who scripted a new genre of films with brave social themes., but also a master to have picked and mentored many legends of Tamil cinema.

He’s the one who introduced/made Superstar Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Nazar, Mohan, Prakash Raj, and A.R.Rahman ... to name a few. (Director Maniratnam may get the pride for introducing Rahman, but it’s KB who is the producer of the movie “Roja” and paid 1st salary for Rahman). All these people have become legends in their lifetime., what a talent KB had to pick and shine these people’s talent!

RIP KB sir. You may not be present physically with us, but your contributions to Tamil cinema will remain forever.
