    Tamil Film actors observed a full day fast today before Nadigar Sangam as a symbol of opposition to the Sri lankan government.

     The Sri Lankan Government attacks on Srilankan Tamilians has attracted a lot of attention in the recent past.People from various walks of life are condemning the government for such brutal attacks and is pressurising the government of India to stop aiding the Sri Lankan army with weapons and supplies.Central Government is also being pressurised severely to take necessary steps in this problem. 

     Following this The Directors’ Association organised a rally on 19th of October headed by Director Bharathiraja in Rameshwaram.Today Nadigar Sangam(Actors’ association) observed a full day fast before the association building at Thiyagaraya nagar.The place was full of actors’ from the Tamil film industry including Actors Rajinikanth, Kamalhassan, Ajithkumar, Vijay, Sathyaraja, Parthiban, Sivakumar, Manorama, Ramyakrishnan, Trisha,Nayanthara,Vivek,Vadivelu etc.The fast was organised by Nadigar Sangam itself.Most notably Viduthalai Siruthaigal Leader Thol.Thirumavalavan and Vateran Politician Pazha.Nedumaran and Most It’s president Sarath kumar and secretary Radharavi organised the fast and it was radharavi who anchored the whole show.

    Most of the big stars were given a chance to address the meeting and all of them insisted on seeking an immediate and a permanent solution to this issue.Eventhough the actors were asked not to speak offensively or hurting anyone including the Sri Lankan Government or the Indian Government,some of them were too emotional in their speech that they were unable to control their feelings.Particularly when Rajinikanth addressed the meeting he called Sri Lankan army a bunch of cowards.

     Even though everyone had their own idea of handling the problem,even had some controversial speeches hitting one another,the fact that the meeting was a great success can’t be denied.Of course,All the credits goes to Sarathkumar who was able to combine the whole of tamil film actors’ community including the two most notable icons of tamil cinema-Rajinikanth & Kamal Hassan and actors like Ajith,Koundamani who seldom make an appearance on the stage.
