MR's ‘Sinhabahu’ gaffe causes consternation

Former President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s mistaken belief that veteran actor Vijaya Nandasiri had the lion’s role in the play ‘Sinhabahu’ has caused consternation with the actor’s fans.

In a message of condolence released at news of the death of the actor, the former President said that Vijaya Nandasiri’s rendition of ‘Galen Bindila’ in the production ‘Sinhabadu’ evoked delightful memories.

‘Galen Bindila' was not performed by the actor Vijaya Nandasiri, but by Mark Anthony Fernando.

The comment has earned the ire of Nandasiri’s fans, who are incensed that the former President made a mistake of this magnitude.
