Hours after the news of Vishal’s candidature being rejected by EC, celebrities from the Tamil film industry took no time to express their opinion about him on Twitter. It all began when Radikaa Sarthkumar, tweeted ‘Bunch of jokers’ with plenty of clown emojis. Soon after she accused Vishal of falsifying signatures, without mentioning his name. She went on tweet ”Start, camera action , before hearing these words some are excelling. To talk of pro people and anti corruption and get rejected for falsifying signatures. Everyone gets to see true colours” followed by clown emojis. She also went on to tweet that he is a true chameleon. It has to be noted that Radikaa’s husband, actor Sarathkumar (who was earlier the President of the Nadigar Sangam) lost to Vishal, after the polls in October 2015. Radikaa, Sarathkumar, and Vishal have been at loggerheads ever since.
Cheran went on to demand Vishal to resign from the post of President of the actor’s union. The National Award-winning director and producer accused Vishal for running after publicity. “People know who is running after publicity. His inexperience and his haste have resulted in his downfall,” Earlier this week the director had said that Vishal’s decision to enter politics would affect the Producers’ Council’s relationship with the ruling party.
“Vishal’s decision of entering politics will affect the Producer Council’s relationship with the ruling party. Several pending perks and benefits which the government will be supporting will be affected,” Cheran had said on Monday. He also added that Vishal had not done anything for the betterment of the of the actors union.
Actor and director T Rajendar also slammed Vishal’s decision to enter politics. He accused of being inexperienced to enter politics. He went on to say “You need experience to be able to file an affidavit. What has Vishal done for the Producers’ Council? Anybody can enter politics but they should be able to answer questions that are asked to them.”
