I was made Most Popular Actor on public protest — Queer story of Thumidu
It was once Thumidu Dodamthenna who bagged the Most Popular Actor award from votes of the target market at the Tele’s 2017 award ceremony held closing night. He managed to get all these votes for his performance in the teledrama ‘Koombiyo’. Incidentally ‘Koombiyo’ became the the Most
Popular Teledrama too. It would enter the Best Teledrama competition subsequent year.
On the instance he was awarded the Most Popular Actor award, the lady announcer posed a question to him requesting him to express his thoughts and at that moment he made a queer comment. “This device is very upset. What is portrayed by means of this award is about the protest symbolically bearing on to this upset and which wants be solved and a gadget which can’t be recovered that has two been selected as the popular award”.
