Ajith is a friend to me. He is a friend to my father as well. It doesn’t have to do anything with his presence in the funeral” said Saran.
“What is it have to do with the current situation ? It doesn’t matter from where he is paying respect. It is not a problem now.” said Saran. When a press reported asked whether Ajith spoke to him, Saran said that it is an irrelevant question now.
