“Pondicherry brings light into my heart. I had been in Pondicherry since 1995. It played one of the most important roles for me to help grow as a person and an actor. I am so very delighted that the 1st Pondicherry International Film Festival is taking place there. Please let us make this event a big success by participating in it with our presence and love.”
