The 33rd anniversary of Dr. Ishari Velan was held this morning at Sathya Studios in Chennai, which was graced by the eminent personalities of Tamil film industry. The gathering also marked the commemoration of Late actor JK Rithesh, who passed away recently. The family members, relatives and friends of Dr. Ishari Velan were part of this event.
Producer K Rajan said, “To help others unconditionally happened to be the soulful life of Ishari Velan sir and he followed it all throughout his life. Both of us happen to be close friends and later our bonding got closer as relatives and our acquaintance was so strong till the end. Ishari Velan was an ardent follower of Puratchi Thalaivar MGR and followed all his principles fervently. He would often keep visiting him during his trips for performing at stage plays and during one such occasion, he departed from us all. He has raised his children in a great manner and has imparted a strong value that one should come up in life through their hard work. He is someone, who would be readily available to help anyone. His son Ishari Ganesh is fulfilling his entire father’s desire, especially the educational institutions. With the scenarios looking bleak in industry, his presence into the production of movies has been more prominent just as his father desired. When Ishari Velan passed away, his family was in debt of 3, 00,000 rupees, which was paid by Puratchi Thalaivar MGR, who later gave 30,000 to his family. With this investment, Ishari K Ganesh worked hard and has become what he is today.”
Poochi Murugan said, “I am delighted and emotionally inclined to see the honour that Ishari K Ganesh has given to JK Rithesh on par with Ishari Velan sir. The children of drama artistes needn’t take up the same job and they are being supported greatly by Ishari K Ganesh sir. I request him to continue helping them.”
Actor Udhaya said, “Ishari Ganesh sir is my role model. It’s really a tougher task to repay the debts of Nadigar Sangam and it happened majorly due to the earnest support of him. JK Rithesh always used to desire that the Nadigar Sangam should function properly and am sure, it will happy and his wish will be fulfilled.”
Actor Nasser said, “The contribution and support extended by Ishari K Ganesh sir happens to be on the major reasons in having the Nadigar Sangam construction works happen successfully. The greatest highlight of today’s occasion is Ishari K Ganesh sir’s unconditional love and value for friendship in remembering his friend JK Rithesh and honoring him with the same respect for his father Ishari Velan sir. I take this opportunity in accepting the fact that JK Rithesh happens to be the major reason behind our stature in Nadigar Sangam.”
Dr. Ishari K Ganesh said, “We were supposed to how the anniversary of my father at the new building of Nadigar Sangam. However, it didn’t happen due to the pending works over the construction. We have been commemorating the anniversary of father over the past 15 years. Last year, my friend JK Rithesh took part in this graceful occasion, but I feel more distressed over his unexpected demise. I deeply pray that his soul may rest in peace. The new building of Nadigar Sangam will be erected sooner.”
The occasion was graced by the family members of Dr. Ishari Velan including Mahalakshmi, Selvi, Aarthi, Kamala Kannan and MGR Janaki College Correspondent Kumar and few other prominent personalities.
