Sasikala vs Panneerselvam: Kollywood extends support to O Panneerselvam

Amidst the political battle between VK Sasikala and O Panneerselvam continues, the Tamil film industry has come out in support of O Panneerselvam.

Questioning the need for calling fresh elections, actor Kamal Haasan condemned alleged attempts by the two camps at horse-trading to take over reins of the government.

"We have a choice. We now have a CM who has been sworn in. So far he has not shown any signs of damage or incompetence. He has been good so far. The people will throw him out when he is proven incompetent," the actor said in an interview.


Asserting that he was not willing to take sides, Haasan said, "I won't say she (Sasikala) is a poor lady; nothing can be further from the truth.

"Pannerselvam is not a friend or foe. He is a tool to execute my democratic will. We will find sharper tools. That is the direction we should take. We should not take blunter tools that we go back to the Stone Age," Kamal Haasan added.

Other actors like Arvind Swamy, Gautami Tadimalla, R Madhavan and S Ve Sekar took to Twitter to extend their support for Panneerselvam.







Former AIADMK member and actor Mansoor Ali Khan told reporters that O Panneerselvam had become 'Original Panneerselvam' today, Times of India reported.

While addressing the press in Tirupur, Musician and BJP member Gangai Amaran called Panneerselvam a "real man". Demanding clarification of doubts about the mysterious circumstances surrounding Jayalalithaa's death, Amaran added: "I was directly affected by Sasikala. She was an accomplice in the criminal act that led to the grabbing of my property. Is it fair that she is allowed to govern the state."

Amaran also questioned: "Why should Sasikala rush to become chief minister when the DA case against her is still pending? Even if she has the support of the MLAs, it is Panneerselvam who has the support of the people."
