Vishal “Shocked” by Sarathkumar’s Speech

Following Sarathkumar’s warning that Vishal would be expelled from Nadigar Sangam, the latter has issued an official statement on the matter. In a press note released last night, Vishal stated that he was shocked to hear what Sarathkumar told the reporters in Trichy. Calling Sarathkumar’s speech “obscure and fake”, Vishal said, “as an actor, I respect each and every member of Nadigar Sangam and I am ready to accept their decision of being expelled from the association, if they insist. But I would kindly request Mr. Sarath Kumar to furnish the exact proof regarding my speech against the association. It really hurt my sentiments as an actor, when Mr. Radharavi and vice president Mr. K.N. Kaalai, addressed actors with unpleasant words, especially the latter using unparliamentary term [sic] as ‘DOGS’.”


Quoting Nadigar Sangam’s Rule No. 13, Vishal added that the union members must be punished as well when they break rules. “In fact, veteran actor Kumarimuthu was alleged of such acts and was moved out. If this is the case, then Mr. K.N. Kaalai and Mr. Radharavi deserve the same stern actions for their pain inflicting words,” he said. He further declared that rules must not be bent. “My only concern is that justice applies the same for all irrespective of their positions, and with accordance to this, both Mr. K.N. Kaalai and Mr. Radharavi have to be immediately expelled from Nadigar Sangam.”
