Tirunelveli, Tamil Nadu Sep 19 (UNI) Senior BJP Leader and Leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha L K Advani today said ''Veerapandiya Katta Bomman'' was the only Tamil Film he has seen.

Addressing the party functionaries during the two-day annual State Convention of Tamil Nadu unit of BJP here this evening, the former Deputy Prime Minister said amid thunderous applause from the party men that the only Tamil film he had seen in his life time was none other than Veerapandiya Katta Bomman, the history of an erstwhile king and freedom fighter hailing from Tamil Nadu.
