Among the numerous highlights at The Galatta Crown 2022, actor-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence was honored with the prestigious 'People's Hero' award, which was presented to him by veteran actor Vijayakumar and Mr. Vinoth Vasanthakumar, CEO of Vasanth & Co. In his acceptance speech, Raghava Lawrence thanked his dear mother for all the success in his life, while also extending his gratitude to Galatta for scaling such great heights after humble beginnings. Upon being queried about the reason for building a temple for his mother, Raghava Lawrence revealed, "I've offered my prayers at many places. But, we don't see the love and affection that is in front of us. My God is at my home. If it weren't for my mother, I would not be here because she was the one who saved my life when I was severely ill during my childhood." 

During his speech, Raghava Lawrence also placed a request to actor-producer/MLA Udhayanidhi Stalin and said, "Each time I take to a stage, I make it a point to ask for help for those in need." He added, "When Kalaignar Karunanidhi sir was there, he helped many children with their open-heart surgeries. On a similar stage, I performed for him and he immediately made arrangements for the open heart surgery formalities for 48 children. After him, you're doing a great job in helping people everywhere. There are many children with heart problems who require surgery to be performed. Your best friend Anbil Mahesh, Minister for School Education, is also here and I request him to help many of the children in our Trust for their future."
