DUBAI – Following the success of the UAE National Day celebrations in India’s states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu, South India’s film stars have vowed to continue the events until the UAE’s 50th anniversary.

Indian actor Ravindhar said on Wednesday that the celebrations “proved very popular and have raised awareness among people about the UAE”.

“In view of the priority India attaches to relations with the UAE, we have decided to hold similar programmes regularly in South India until the Golden Jubilee of the UAE in 2021,” Ravindhar said.

UAE National Day celebrations in South India began on Sunday in Kerala, with a motorcade of 130 motorbikes adorned in UAE and Indian flags.

On Monday, actor Mohanlal spoke to a crowd in Tamil Nadul about the significance of the UAE National Day after an audio-visual album of Emirati poet Shihab Ghanem was played to the crowd. Photos of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan were also shown on the big screen. DAJ/Expat Media
