In an interview to Thanthi TV, actor STR opened up on why Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan didn't talk like him about the Cauvery issue.
“First of all, the question on why Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan didn’t talk like me regarding the Cauvery issue is wrong. Both of them have now entered into politics and had they spoken something on the lines of what I said, a section would have branded them as an anti-Tamilian”, said STR, who also clarified that he is neither a supporter or a hater of the Superstar and Ulaganayagan entering politics.
“Why I asked people in Karnataka to come forward and give a glass of water to Tamilians in their state is to break the image that they would vote only if politicians there oppose Tamil Nadu and its people in Cauvery issue”, added STR.
STR also said that he was against the silent protest of Nadigar Sangam and hence, conveyed what he felt to the media.
