    Hari :

    what is the award for kamal..for his dasavatharam and golden jubilee year…

    • Dasavatharam is officially a 2008 release, so that kind of rules him out for 2009. I think you have given me an idea for a seperate post on Kamal. The award that i can consider for Kamal in 2009 would be ‘Oscars-the-sour-grapes’ Award for his ‘now-yes-now-no’ stance on the Oscars. 🙂
