In the movie in a song a Tamil person was being insulted and it was the talk of the town. The students thought that MGR will not attend and the collection for the fund will be down. But MGR had another plan he came to the fund raiser and attended the movie on the end of the movie spoke about how movies will impact common people and strongly condemned that particular scene and also mentioned that he was hurt the way Tamilan was projected. On leaving the dais MGR asked the students to visit him the next day.
