Will asin continue in tamil cinema ?
The recently held protest Unnaviradam by Kollywood fraternity drew attention from everywhere. The South Indian film artists association had stressed on compulsory participation from all the stars during the protest, failing which they were asked to give an explanation to the union.
Some of the prominent absentees are directors K Balachander, Mani Ratnam, Shankar and Bharathiraja. From the actor's side Asin, Arya, Karthik, Simran, Navya Nair, Gopika, Padmapriya and Nila wereconspicuous by their absence. When the council met on the 8th of April, there was a discussion on the type of action to be taken against these members and it wasdecided to seek a written explanation from these people within 15 days. It was said that many of them had submitted their explanation except perhaps Asin!While talking about this issue, Radha Ravi who is the General Secretary of the union said that suitable action would be taken against Asin once Sarathkumar returns to Chennai. Whether she would actually be banned from acting in Tamil films is something we’ll just have to wait and find out.
