Vishal has thanked Vijay Sethupathi, Nayanthara, Karthi and Khusbu Sundar for boycotting Filmfare Awards ceremony, which was held on Sunday.
“In the past, there have been several Film related functions, Award ceremonies, Dance programmes and Television Programmes in which actors have participated and many have performed in such functions. However, in recent times, such functions have taken a commercial twist and conducted as a means to generate huge revenue for such organizing entities. Considering the above, it had been officially resolved in Nadigar Sangam special meeting that actors should participate only in functions in which they are paid or only in functions where the organizing entities contribute donations to Nadigar Sangam and Tamil Film Producer Council,” read a statement from Nadigar Sangam.
Post this resolution, Colours TV, Vijay TV Awards and Galatta Dot Com Award ceremonies contributed donations to Nadigar Sangam which were used to provide health and educational aid to deserving members.
