Actor Shanthnu Bhagyaraj recently said what most people have been thinking... very few actually care about the Nadigar Sangam elections. So, what prompted him to drop the truth bombs on Twitter?
Because things were getting very heated between the two parties, Pandavar Ani and Swami Sankaradas Ani.
To the uninitiated, Pandavar Ani is headed by Nassar, Vishal Reddy and Karthi and they are being challenged by Swani Sankaradas Ani, a group that used to be part of Pandavar Ani but broke off because they couldn't agree with the way things were run.
They are being led by actor-director Bhagyaraj, Udhaya, Kutty Padmini and Ishari Ganesh.
Check out Shanthnu's tweets, the actor doesn't hold anything back!
"Actually the public DONT give a damn about what's happening here cuz there are BIGGER problems to worry about in the society ! WE HAVE TO ACCEPT THAT ! Influencers, I know u are doing ur job,but pls save it for something more productive. I really wish the media stops giving so much importance to this and takes up other issues which will favour the public !"
He also hit out at Pandavar Ani. "Don't understand d point of makin influencers post tweets here askin everyone to vote 4someone! #NadigarSangamElections D only truth d public need to know is d amount of nonsense that's happening in d name of elections!All of us have a bonding beyond dis,bt it's only getting dirty. Kanda poochi ellam "Bhagyaraj yaaru? nadigara ?"nnu kaetaram! LOL ? @VishalKOfficial @Karthi_Offl #Nassersir , if u really want to let set properties below u do d talking,relationships are gona go bad! I reckon you to come forward to ask questions if u really wan to knw!"
Prasanna came out in support of Shanthnu and posted, "Am totally with u Sonu. This is something to be done quietly. Dont know why talking to media? Going for debates & crassly abusing each other..after all general public need not know about this. They have million other worthy things to worry about. This is really unfortunate."
Nadigar Sangam is the elections for the South Indian Artistes Association.
Over the years, the post of Nadigar Sangam chief has become crucial and powerful in the state. It's an open secret that the ones elected to lead Nadigar Sangam have considerable control over Kollywood.
Any artist with payment or call sheet issues with producers or financiers just need to approach Nadigar Sangam to get things sorted out. Kollywood is usually split down the middle when during the election period.
Thanks Shanthnu for stepping up and being the people's voice!
