Absence Of Actors Ajith And Vijay At Malaysia Natchathira Vizha Irks Nadigar Sangam Cinema News
The recently held Natchathira Vizha by Nadigar Sangam has gone on to become a huge hit with the presence of a host of celebrities including Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth. However, actors Ajith and Vijay were conspicuous by their absence. A source from the Nadigar Sangam told us that office-bearers weren’t happy with these leading actors giving the gala event a miss.
The source told us, “From the beginning, Vijay made it clear that he wouldn’t be a part of the show but said that he would be contributing to the Nadigar Sangam building in his own way.” It is to be noted that the actor was holidaying in China with his family during the same time. He is expected to return to the city post Pongal. Vijayakanth couldn’t make it to the event as well. “But that is understandable as Captain informed that he needed some rest,” added the source.
However, sources say that Ajith didn’t allocate time for office-bearers to meet him and even invite him for the show. “Despite a senior office bearer trying to get in touch with Ajith, he wasn’t given the time, which has irked the members. We understand that it’s his policy to not be a part of any film or industry-related events. Still, he should have the basic courtesy to have at least meet a senior actor and an office-bearer of a prestigious body like Nadigar Sangam,” added the source.
Reacting to it, Ajith’s manager said, “Ajith was not in town for a long time. He is recuperating from a shoulder injury. He was in London for a while before coming to Mumbai. Otherwise, he has always supported the industry. He was also a part of Nadigar Sangam’s jallikattu protest last year.”
