Chennai: Tamil actor Thala Ajith Kumar has turned down requests to attend the South Indian Film Artistes’ Association’s cricket tournament, also known as Nadigar Sangam’s Star Cricket Tournament, scheduled to be held on April 17.
Ajith said that other actors should not seek financial support from the public and handle it themselves. Earlier in 2010, Ajith also openly appealed to the then Chief Minister M Karunanidhi to ensure that actors aren’t forced to attend political functions.
The Nadigar Sangam’s tournament is being held to help raise funds for a new building for the Sangam.
As per sources, actor Vishal has hit back at Ajith saying that the building, for which the money would be raised, would be a public property and not a personal property of any actor and actress.
He even added that the cricket tournament is being held for a good cause.
Vishal indirectly attacked Thala Ajith by saying that he was one of those actors who want to garner fame by not attending social gatherings.
