However, he revealed that unfortunately, he could not take up the role due to some prior commitments. He also wished that he got a chance to act alongside Kamal Haasan, sometime in the future.

While receiving the award, RJ Balaji also opened up on how the spark happened in him, to work for some change in society. He stated that when all across Chennai, tender coconuts were being sold for Rs. 50-60, he noticed one vendor in Alwarpet selling it for Rs. 30-35. Wondering if those were old coconuts, he went and asked the vendor the details. The vendor has supposedly told RJ Balaji that the competition for selling tender coconuts was very high, so he had decided to lower his profit margin and was thus making more sales and earning more money. In the following days, RJ Balaji had come to see that tender coconut vendors in other areas too had begun lowering their selling prices. This incident has sparked a thought in RJ Balaji that a single person can make a significant change in society without even raising their voice. We thank RJ Balaji for gracing the Galatta Nakshatra Awards 2019 and wish him all success in his future endeavours!
