Ace director Bharathiraja has thought of the idea to open the film School of Institute so as to teach filmmaking, direction, editing, sound and other areas of the film industry. The training institute was inaugurated on Tamil New Year day April 14, 2017. Rajini and Kamal graced the function.
The Institution is been named as BRIIC, the Bharathiraja International Institute of Cinema. This institute was inaugurated by the actor Superstar Rajinikanth and legendary Kamal Hasan. Rajinikanth has opened the institute while Kamal had inaugurated the preview theatre. The director Mani Ratnam who is the close friend of Bharathi Raja also attended the function.
They both have stood to be the biggest pillar for the director Bharathiraja. The classic example for this would be 16 Vayathinile Movie.
Celebrities who graced this interesting occasion are Radhika Sarathkumar, Suhasini Mani Ratnam, Radha, Revathi, Rekha and Vairamuthu among others.
