A Beautiful Way to Celebrate the Actor!

There was a time in the past where two actors ruled the screens of Tamil cinema. It goes without saying that they’re none other than actor MG. Ramachandran and actor Sivaji Ganesan. They have left behind a legacy for Kollywood and are one of the most celebrated actors till date. Today is Sivaji Ganesan’s 93rd birth anniversary. Now, it is not surprising that the entire Kollywood fraternity is celebrating his anniversary through wishes and posts on social media. However, we have an unexpected and unprecedented wish, honouring the actor today. 

Google has honoured the actor’s 93rd birth anniversary with a google doodle. The doodle for today has been illustrated by a Bangalore-based guest artist Noopur Rajesh Choksi. The doodle was tweeted by the official Google Doodles twitter page. 

Actor Vikram Prabhu, the grandson of Actor Sivaji also shared the doodle on his instagram and said, “Thankyou for making us, his family & millions of his fans around the world happier today. Another proud moment! Love him and miss him more every year!”

Sivaji Ganesan was born on October 1st, 1928 in Villupuram as Ganesamoorthy. Ganesan, who entered the theatre world at the age of 7, played child and female roles before moving on to play lead roles.  In December 1945, Ganesan made a name for himself with his theatrical portrayal of 17th-century Indian King Shivaji. Ever since, he has been called Sivaji’ Ganesan because of the way he portrayed the king, in a way nobody has done in the past.

He made his film debut with Parasakthi in 1952. He has starred in over 300 films in a career spanning over five decades. Ganesan was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1997.
