Actress Varalaxmi has come down heavily on Vishal Krishna, actor and secretary of Nadigar Sangam, over his latest Nadigar Sangam election campaign video.
Tamil Nadu's South Indian Artistes' Association or Nadigar Sangam gears up for its elections to be held on June 23.
The actress has released a letter on Twitter in which she has criticised Vishal for dragging her father Sarathkumar and uncle Radha Ravi in the video.
Though Sarathkumar is not contesting the current elections, the video mentions his tenure. Sarathkumar had been elected president unopposed earlier.
Varalaxmi has expressed her shock over the video and slammed Vishal for trying to project her father's mistakes rather than highlighting his own achievements.
Varalaxmi said she had lost all respect for Vishal. “I am saddened and shocked at how low you have stooped down in your recent election campaign video... any respect I have left for you is gone..” she wrote.
Interestingly, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar was known to be close friend of Vishal and was even rumoured girlfriend of him. She had backed him over her father's candidature in the previous Nadigar Sangam elections.
