Bala has heaved a sigh of relief. On the last day of 2008 (December 31), his magnum opus Naan Kadavul has been cleared by the Regional Censor Board in Chennai, with an UA certificate. The film also now become eligible for National Awards 2008, as it has been censored that year.
It was a momentous day for Bala, as he has been toiling hard on this project for over two years and finally the film is going to see the light of the day.
The film also managed to get through the censors with minor muting of dialogues and an UA certificate due to its theme.
We salute Bala's never-say-die spirit and his belief in his project. Those who saw the film say it is fantastic and are praising Arya and Pooja who have come up with an outstanding performance and Ilayaraja's superb background score.
