Nadigar Sangam, The South Indian Artists Association is all set for its poll which is expected to be conducted in 9 days. Two teams which has senior actors such as Nasser and K Bhagyaraj as leaders are competing in the election. Named as Pandavar Ani, Nasser’s team has Vishal, Karthi as prominent members whereas Bhagyaraj’s Swami Sankar Das team has actor Prashanth and popular producer Ishari Ganesh.
Ahead of the upcoming Nadigar Sangam elections, both the teams are involved in campaigns to gain votes. On June 23, members of Nadigar Sangam will be casting their votes to their favorite candidates at the MGR Janaki college in Chennai.
Meanwhile Vishal’s close friend and actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar has released a statement in her official twitter account slamming Vishal. Both of them acted in movies such as Madha Gaja Raja which is a shelved project and Sandakozhi 2, directed by Lingusamy. More than their onscreen presence both the actors are very much known for their off screen bonding as friends.
Now the actress released a statement thrashing the actor for dragging her father to gain votes in the ongoing election. In one of the video released by Vishal’s youtube channel Vishal’s Film Factory, it can be seen Sarathkumar and Radha Ravi being blamed for their leadership.
Varalaxmi who got extremely angry on seeing the video, in her statement wrote, “Dear Vishal,
I’m saddened and shocked at how low you have stooped down in your recent election campaign video. Any respect I have left for you is now gone..it’s so sad to see you harp on my father’s past especially when you have NOT been able to prove squat..since you keep saying the law is the highest..according to that same law any person is innocent until proven guilty..if he was guilty he would have been sentenced by now.. So have some class and grow up..when you make such cheap videos it shows your class can’t blame you, I guess cos that’s the way u have been brought up.. let’s not behave like you are a saint… I think we all know your double standards and lies. If you were such a saint I don’t think people from your own so called #pandavarani would have left and created a group just to bring you down. If you are so proud of what you have done why don’t you showcase that instead of bringing down my dad when he’s not even involved this time. So many people can’t be wrong about you.. all this time I respected you and I have been there for you as a friend always. Now you have taken it too far.. it’s so sad instead of making a positive video about the things you have achieved you resorted to the lowest form of campaigning. Well I guess you are a true actor at least off screen after all..!! Like you say I really hope the truth prevails…
Well you just lost my vote.”
