Varalaxmi Sarathkumar released a letter, in which she criticised actor Vishal ahead of Nadigar Sangam election in Tamil Nadu
Tamil actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar looks pretty upset with star Vishal Krishna who is one of the candidates contesting the Nadigar Sangam election. During his campaign, he had criticised Varalaxmi's father Sarath Kumar and her uncle Radha Ravi.
A video, which took a dig at Sarathkumar and Radha Ravi's leadership, was uploaded on Vishal's YouTube channel, Vishal Film Factory.
Now, Varalaxmi has come to her father's rescue and slammed Vishal, saying he should stop highlighting her father's mistakes and start showcasing his achievements during his campaign.
The Nadigar Sangam, also known as the South Indian Artistes' Association, is a union for actors in the theatre, film and television industry.
According to reports, Varalaxmi was Vishal's childhood friend and was also his rumoured girlfriend. Varalaxmi, reportedly, had supported Vishal during the last Nadigar Sangam election.
Here are the details of Varalaxmi’s statement:
I'm saddened and shocked at how low you have stooped down in you recent election campaign video… any respect I have left for you is now gone… it's so sad to see you harp on my father's past especially when you have NOT been able to prove squat… since you keep saying the law is the highest.. according to that same law any person is innocent until proven guilty… if he was guilty he would have been sentenced by now... So have some class and grow up... when you make such cheap videos it shows your class can't blame you, I guess cos that's the way u have been brought up… let's not behave like you are saint… I think we all know your double standards and your lies. If you were such a saint, I don't think people from your own so called #pandavarani would have left and created a group just to bring you down. If you are so proud of what you have done why don't you showcase that instead of bringing down my dad when he's not even involved this time. so many people can't be wrong about you... all this time I respected you and I have been there for you as friend always. Now you have taken it too far… it's so sad instead of making a positive video about the things you have achieved you resorted to the lowest form of campaigning. Well I guess you are a true actor at least off screen after all...!! Like you say I really hope the truth prevails…
Well you just lost my vote.
Varalaxmi Sarathkumar (sic)”
The election will be held in MGR Janaki college in Chennai on June 23. With this letter, the actress has made it pretty clear that she is definitely not going to vote for him.
