Silapadhigaram  is the  most dynamic of the epic stories of South Indian history. The lady who brought back justice for her husband and burnt the entire city of Madurai with her wrath when injustice prevailed. It's my privilege to portray the role of the protagonist Kannagi and to present this 'magnum opus' production of Guru Madurai R Muralidharan. The dance musical which is successfully celebrating its silver jubilee on this occasion has been staged with overwhelming appreciation all over the world.  Being in the field of Bharatanatyam since I was initiated into this art form from the age of four and subsequently pursuing Kuchupudi, I feel blessed to be completing 50 years in my artistic journey this year.  I humbly dedicate this program to  my parents, gurus, mentors and all my well wishers.
