Meanwhile, a set of people including politicians from leading parties said that the actor is doing it for publicity as he is going to enter active politics soon. Now, questioning their allegation, Director and actor Parthiban said that their statement is baseless. He said that there is no necessity for Vijay to attend a funeral to increase the mileage for his politics which is far from today.
“Politics is not as easy as cinema. Recently, when Vijay went to the funeral of SPB sir, he picked up a slipper of his fans. That caused several memes and few referred my “Oththa Seruppu” film as well. At that time, a critic said that Vijay went to the funeral only for his political purpose. I got shocked when I heard it” said Parthiban.
“To become Chief minister in future, one would go to a funeral today ? Is it that necessary. Our today’s politics requires that much drama ? What is the profit through that ?” the filmmaker questioned the critic’s statement.
He went on to criticize the rift in the ruling party of Tamil nadu. “If there is a ruling party, there will be an opposite party. But in our state, a opposite party exists inside the ruling party.” said Parthiban who added that no one is seeking solution for the problems of people. “Today’s politics only creates debates but no solution” he said.
