Opposition builds up against Vijaykanth


Tamil Actor VijayakanthHe may be sitting in the Opposition benches in the Tamilnadu Assembly. But, Vijayakanth’s illusions about being firmly ensconced in his seat as president of South Indian Actors’ Guild are being badly shaken.

The elections to the Guild are scheduled for July 30 and a meeting of the executive committee of the Guild was held yesterday. President Vijayakanth, secretary Selvaraj and a couple of other office bearers were present. Selvaraj read out the annual report. The meeting was over in just 30 minutes.

When Vijayakanth entered his chambers a few other members followed suit. As soon as they all got in, executive committee member and popular actor, Nasser, protested against the manner in which the meeting was conducted in just half an hour.

He also objected that those who have political ambitions should not be at the helm of affairs of the body. He then walked out.

Speaking to reporters outside he said,”This is our apex body for solving our problems and addressing issues of the industry. There is no place for any person with political leanings. One should not mix politics in cinema.”

Vijayakanth meanwhile kept his cool and said that there was all round appreciation for the good work done by him and a majority of the members wanted him to contest again. He said that names of candidates would be announced by the end of this week.
