CHENNAI: To mark the sixth anniversary of the passing away of celebrated actor Sivaji Ganesan, the Sivaji-Prabhu Charities Trust honoured eminent thespian J.P. Chandrababu at a function at the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) auditorium here on Saturday.

Chandrababu — actor, comedian, singer and dancer — featured in many successful films from the late 1940s to the 1970s along with Sivaji, M.G. Ramachandran and M.R. Radha, among others.

“J.P. Chandrababu was such a multifaceted talent with his acting, comedy and singing,” said G. Ramkumar, Sivaji’s eldest son, who is now involved with the charity.

“He was such a good friend not only to the acting industry, but to the nation as well; he even performed for our jawans two times, during the 1965 war.”

In Chandrababu’s memory, the trust, along with the Department of Posts, has brought out a special postal cover commemorating his long and successful career. The cover, which was released by T. Panneerselvam, Postmaster-General, Chennai City Region, depicts stills from Chandrababu’s films Sabash Meena — a 1958 classic he starred in along with Sivaji — Kadavulai Kanden and Sahodari, as well as images of the actor with M.G. R. and M.R. Radha.

The function featured clips from movies they starred in together.
