Popular director Cheran has now demanded that Vishal should resign his Tamil Film Producers’ Council President and Nadigar Sangam General Secretary posts before filing nomination at RK Nagar constituency.
Cheran says that Vishal is contesting in the by-election under the influence of someone. After winning Nadigar Sangam elections, Vishal sought blessings from DMK Supremo Karunanidhi but now, he is paying respects to MGR and Jayalalithaa before his nomination, which raises a big question, says Cheran.
Because of Vishal’s sudden decision, existing political parties will not support Tamil film industry and producers will come to the streets. "Vishal should consider the welfare of producers and step down from the powerful posts of Nadigar Sangam and Tamil Film Producers Council. If he refuses to resign, I will begin my protest," says Cheran.
