Actor Dhanush gifts one crore to the Actors Association

Actor Dhanush Nadigar sangam

Nadigar Sangam is officially known as the South Indian Artistes Association for film and stage actors. It is headquartered in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. It was formed in 1952. The President is actor M Nassar, and the Secretary is actor Vishal.

When actor Vijayakanth served as Nadigar Sangam’s President from 2000 to 2006, he significantly cleared association debts of around 4.5 crores. He also made a great effort to unite actors in the Tamil film industry, serving as a great leader.

The construction of the building started seven years back; Actor Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan laid the first stone. Even though it was laid out, the work has been considerably delayed due to financial crunches. Four years back, actor Vishal announced the construction status with a vast building layout. In a general body meeting conducted by Nadigar Sangam, headed under actors Nassar and Vishal, he said to gather loan funds of 40 crores to finish the project; it was planned to open the building by January 2019, but the plans collapsed because of financial problems by Nadigar Sangam.

Two months back, actor Vijay donated one crore for the building fund, followed by actor Udhayanidhi Stalin, who also donated one crore for building construction. Actor Surya donated 25 lakhs towards Nadigar Sangam. Kamal Hassan also donates one crore. This extensive project comes with a 1000-seat auditorium, a preview theatre, and a wedding hall; it will symbolize iconicity with its structure. The total project cost is estimated at around 26 crores. Due to the unexpected project delays, the estimated costs have risen. 

Following all these obstructions, actor Dhanush has gifted one crore to construct the Nadigar Sangam building today. It’s significant support, as Actor Vishal tweeted on his Twitter page today. Recently, Dhanush built a house worth 150 crores in Chennai, which is remarkable.
