Usually, it has been considered as the most important norm and rule of National Awards committee that a film wouldn’t be nominated if it’s a remake. But it was an exception for Late actor MGR’s 1965 movie ‘Enga Veettu Pillai’.

The film featured MGR in dual roles as twin brothers with one as a brave and heroic while other one, a cowardice. The film turned to be a huge box office blockbuster running successfully for nearly 175 days in 7 theatres.

Witnessing the grand success with an unbeatable box office collection, the movie was considered for the National award selection.
