    Departure of series of famous film actors in succession viz., AVS, Dharmavarapu Subrahmanyam, Sri Hari, Smt.Anjali Devi and latest ANR is frightening and depressing and has caused extreme distress to the people of South India and particularly to the citizens of Andhra Pradesh. It appears that the film actors in general are prone to intense physical, mental and emotional stress not known to public and that many actors who retired from acting are the silent sufferers due to economic and health problems. Therefore, it becomes essential that a corpus fund be created by an organization for the welfare of film artists and interest accrued thereof be spent for supporting film actors who attained the age of 65 years and above.
