When ever I write a new Post and publish I receive less comments just one or two. When the topic shifts to MGR Movie records I get various kind of comments from MGR Fans as well as from Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Fans. The post for comments will come within 2 to 3 days. Some post will comments nearly after three or four months. I posted about MGR’s Picture festival on December. By the end of February I received a comment from Mr.Pradeep Balu saying him the Grand Son of M.G.Chakrapani and MGR. I first thought some one is trying to play practical joke. Because I felt why should such persons will try to contact me, what great thing I have done to MGR. I did not answer to his email. This month too I received two comments one with his mobile number. Then I contacted Mr.Pradeep Balu just two minutes talk and when contacted daily. I asked more about his family and he gave the details which I want to share with MGR Devotees and MGR Fans.
