The lion of Tamil Stage Drama late Shri.R.S.Manohar was one of the finest actors in those days. He passed away on 10th January 2006. On the 10 year death anniversary of this great actor I have remembered him and thought of writing an article.
I have watched most of his stage drama in those days as a young boy. I still remember the trick shots and the magic that he used to create on the stage. The stage dramas that I vividly remember watching as a young boy are:
- Ilangeswaran (top of the list, ofcourse)
- Chanakiya Sabadam
I have always enjoyed his acting whether it is in movies or on stage plays. He was a majestic man with a manly voice and used to roar like a Lion on the stage.
I am really fortunate to have been born in Chennai that too in the 1960s as I had the privilege of watching such legendary actors like R.S.Manohar both on stage as well as on screen.
Long Live R.S.Manohar's Drama and Legacy that he has left behind in staging mythological stories.
