AIADMK Ministers Question Kamal Haasan's Personal Life, Call Him A 'Third-Rate Actor'

Kamal Haasan, while reacting to National Commission for Women's demand for an apology over naming the actress in the abduction case, said he'll not bend in front of anyone.

This is not the first time that Kamal Haasan has spoken out against the AIADMK government. He was also the first to talk about the "system" to have collapsed, nearly 2 years before Rajinikanth's comment on the "system" being in a need of revamp.

On Kamal Haasan's comments about corruption in Tamil Nadu government departments, Jayakumar said the actor is indulging in mudslinging and they will not keep quiet.

Actor Karunas, a sitting MLA of Thiruvadanai constituency, who addressed media persons recently, said that he was observing Ulaganayagan Kamal Haasan and his criticisms against the current government.

"If you have evidence, then prove it". He also said that the actor had no big projects in hand and would do anything for cheap publicity.

Peskov: we hope for U.S. political wisdom in Russian diplomatic property spat
The Trump administration has tied returning the compounds to Russian Federation if Moscow shows " acts of good faith " in Syria. The two superpowers are now clashing after the United States seized Russian diplomatic property in NY and Maryland.

Popular actor Dileep was arrested on Monday for plotting the attack.

AIADMK Amma leader spokesperson and "sidelined" Party Deputy General Secretary TTV Dinakaran loyalist Nanjil Sampath too took objections to Ministers addressing the actor in singular and threatening him with actions under the Prevention of Atrocities act. "He had an affair with an actress, didn't marry her and chased her away which is against Tamil and Indian culture".

Actor Kamal Haasan's remarks on alleged corruptions in various departments triggered controversy in Tamil Nadu with horde of ministers charging the actor for his remarks even as the Opposition parties were defending the thespian's statement.

Shanmugam said Haasan had no right to question the functioning of the state government. In fact many in the state, see the ministers' outburst as only depicting their insecurity.
