Dhanush Donates ₹1 Crore to Nadigar Sangam Building Construction

Actor Dhanush has made a significant contribution of ₹1 crore towards the construction of the new building for the Nadigar Sangam, also known as the South Indian Artistes' Association (SIAA), in Chennai. Dhanush presented the cheque to SIAA President Nassar and Treasurer Karthi in a ceremony, joining other prominent Tamil actors who have donated to the cause.

Industry tracker Ramesh Bala shared the news on X (formerly Twitter), stating, "South Indian Artistes' Association member - Actor Dhanush donated a sum of rupees 1,00,00,000/- (1 Crore) from his personal fund towards the construction of New Nadigar Sangam Building." The SIAA expressed gratitude for Dhanush's generous gesture.

Dhanush's donation follows similar contributions made by actors Vijay and Kamal Haasan, who each donated ₹1 crore to the building project in March 2024. Vishal, the General Secretary of the association, thanked them on X, saying, "Thank u means just two words but means a lot to a person wen he does it from his heart. Well, am talking about my favourite actor our very own Thalapathi Vijay brother for DONATING ONE CRORE towards our SIAA NadigarSangam building work."

The Nadigar Sangam building project, initiated in 2015, aims to construct a complex with facilities such as a wedding hall and dubbing studio. However, the project faced delays due to changes in the association's administration and rising construction costs. The current administration, led by Nassar, is working to complete the project, which now requires significantly more than the initial estimate of ₹40 crore.

To secure a bank loan for the project, the Nadigar Sangam needs a minimum of ₹10 crore in its account as a guarantee. The association is relying on donations from its members and well-wishers to achieve this goal. In addition to Dhanush, Vijay, and Kamal Haasan, actor Napoleon has also contributed ₹1 crore, while Sivakarthikeyan donated ₹50 lakh.

Dhanush, who is currently working on the multi-lingual film Kubera and his directorial venture Raayan, has joined the growing list of actors supporting the Nadigar Sangam's efforts to construct a new building. With the help of these contributions, the association hopes to complete the project soon, providing a valuable resource for its members and the South Indian film industry.
