R Madhavan social media post

R Madhavan expressed his gratitude to the Tamilnadu government and extended his congratulations to his fellow awardees on social media. He acknowledged the significance of the recognition and praised the talent within the industry.

The delay in presenting the awards raised eyebrows among the audience. The film awards for 2015 are being announced nine years later in 2024 prompting questions about the reasons behind the delay. The hiatus in the Tamil Nadu state film awards occurred after 2008 only to be reinstated in 2017. Subsequently awards for the years 2009 to 2014 were presented between 2017 and 2023 with the exception of 2020 due to the global pandemic. Hence, the long awaited award for 2015 is being conferred in 2024.
