SIIMA 2019: Dhanush and Trisha bags leading honours for Tamil

Aimed at felicitating the artistic and technical achievements of the south Indian film industry, it is traditionally a two-day fest where the first day is dedicated to Telugu and Kannada films and the second day is about Malayalam and Tamil films.
Kathir’s mirror image of today’s reality, 'Pariyerum Perumal' was awarded as the best movie where Dhanush was felicitated with the best actor for his mind gobbling performance in 'Vada Chennai'. Lovely Trisha Krishnan appreciated for her role in ’96' with the best actress award.
