Nadigar Sangam (also known as South Indian Cine Artistes’ Association – SICAA), which holds the mega cultural meet in Malaysia on 06 January (Saturday), has ‘neglected’ senior actors and previous office-bearers of the Sangam.
The mega-cultural nite is organized in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to raise funds for the construction of a new building for the Sangam at T. Nagar in Chennai. Battery of frontline artistes including superstar Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are among the 340 artistes taking part in the function at Kuala Lumpur organized by the present Nadigar Sangam team led by Nasser, Vishal, Karthi, Ponvannan and Karunas.
However, it is indeed regrettable that they have chosen not to invite ‘supreme hero’ Sarathkumar, veteran actress Radha Ravi and Chandrasekar (office-bearers of the previous tenures at the Sangam) as well as Radhika (Sarathkuma’s wife) to take part in the music nite. Rajini and Kamal displayed their years of camaraderie by arriving at the venue by a special chopper arranged by the local Government.
When a fan tweeted on Twitter to ask Radhika why she didn’t take part at the Kuala Lumpur event, Radhika said that she and Sarathkumar were not invited. It also turns out that invitation was not given to Radha Ravi and Chandrasekar as well. It may be noted that frontline heroes Ajith, Simbu, Vijay and Dhanush had also not left Chennai to attend the fund-raiser.
