SonyLiv Launches Tamil Web Streaming Content [& Our Selfies with Movie Stars]

Before we get into the news in the title of this post, here are a couple of selfies we took at today’s SonyLiv press meet event at Taj Coromandel, Chennai. SonyLiv organized this event to launch their original web series in Tamil and also to introduce their other language and English content (incl. sports) to viewers here.

Here is our selfie with the Iconic Tamil movie director – Singeetam Srinivasa Rao. He has directed great movies like Apoorva Sagodharargal, Michael Madana Kama Rajan, Magalir Mattum, etc. starring Kamal Hassan in Tamil. He has directed many movies in Telugu, Hindi, etc. as well. It was our pure luck to have had the opportunity to meet him and talk to him.

Here is another selfie we took today, this time with Sanjjanaa Galrani, a popular South Indian actress who has acted in many Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam movies. Her sister Nikki Galrani is a popular Tamil Heroine.
