Actor Vishal, who is contesting the Nadigar Sangam elections for a second time, finds himself under severe fire not just from enemy quarters but also from those he considered his own at one point in time.
Actress Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, considered to be close to Vishal earlier, was the first to launch a verbal attack on the actor this morning after the Pandavar Ani, the team that actor Vishal is leading in the Nadigar Sangam elections, put out a campaign video that took pot shots at former office bearers of the Nadigar Sangam including Varalakshmi’s dad, actor Sarath Kumar.
Varalaxmi held nothing back as she took to social media to express her displeasure at what Vishal had done.
In a letter addressed to Vishal, she said, “I’m saddened and shocked at how low you have stooped down in your 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 makes such cheap videos, it shows your class. Can’t blame you, I guess, cos that’s the way you have been brought up. Let’s not behave like you are (a) 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’snot 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 a 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 have 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. God bless. “
Later in the evening, Sarath Kumar’s wife, actress Radhikaa Sarathkumar issued a statement in which she too lambasted Vishal for the video that had been put out by the Pandavar ani.
