Actor Ajith, who commands one of the biggest fan bases in the south of the country, has, through his legal counsel, clarified that he has not authorised any individual or group or association or social media handle to use his name or image or to make any statements or express social, political or personal views on his behalf.
On Saturday evening, M S Bharath, one of the senior partners of Anand and Anand, a legal firm, clarified through a notice that the actor also does not commercially endorse any brand, product, corporation or association.
Bharath made it clear that while Ajith is thankful and grateful to his genuine fans, followers, film journalists, critics and the general public who have supported him through the years, he does not prefer to have any official fan clubs.
Ajith has said that he does not have any official page or account on any of the social media platforms and that there were a few unauthorised, self-proclaimed individuals, groups and associations that were passing off their personal views and opinions on social and political issues as that of the star’s.
Through his lawyer, the actor has said that such people have also been trolling members of the film fraternity, journalists, critics and other individuals. Stressing on the need to identify such miscreants so that they could be held accountable for their actions, Ajith also tendered an unconditional apology for any harm caused by the trolling.
