The celebration will coincide with 50 years of his association with the silver screen, so it holds much importance.

Pledging his support to the programme, K J Yesudas said he celebrates his birthday in a simple way at Kollur every year, this programme has given him the opportunity to help the needy.

 “I don’t take it as a birthday celebration. This is the programme for underprivileged in the society who are deprived of many facilities. We are not making a single penny from this event. Everything will go to the needy. So, I request people to support us in a big way,” he said.

The passes for the event are available at Sangeetha mobile outlets and rotary clubs.
