As per the new resolution taken by Nadigar Sangam, organizers of any award function are supposed to donate money for the betterment of the actors’ association. 

According to Nadigar Sangam, the organizers of such private awards are earning huge revenue from such events and as they expect the presence of top actors to garner TRP's when aired on television channels. 

Post this new resolution of Nadigar Sangam, Colours TV, Vijay TV Awards and Galatta awards contributed donations to Nadigar Sangam which were used to provide health and educational aid to deserving members.  

Nadigar Sangam also informed about their stance to the organizers of Filmfare which was held at Hyderabad on 16th June 2018 but they didn’t contribute anything for the association. 

Respecting Nadigar Sangam’s decision top stars like Nayanthara, Khushboo, Vijay Sethupathi, Karthi and many others did not turn up to receive their awards. The star presence from Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada was also very poor and on the whole the most prestigious Filmfare awards function 2018 turned out to be a damp squib. 

Sources close to the award function say that the travel and accommodation expense of actors to participate in shows costs them a bomb and if they start donating to the Nadigar Sangam,it is no longer profitable!
