Ajith Kumar has a great reason to celebrate for his latest release 'Viswasam' has been already declared a blockbuster. While the Siva directorial continues to rake in the moolah, the actor had something on his mind that he wanted to disclose. Now, in a letter that acts as a press release, the actor has conveyed his viewpoints on politics in a loud and clear manner.
He started out his letter by saying that, "There are certain news updates linking me and my fans with some political organisations. Such baseless news during the current time period leading up to elections, would send out wrong signals that I have political aspirations."
Then, taking a clear stand on the matter he declared, "I would like to clarify that I have no intention or aspiration to join politics directly or indirectly. The only and best association I have with politics, is to queue up to cast my vote as a citizen of India."
Thala also made it crystal clear that he has never at any point influenced or asked his fans to lean towards a particular political party. Then concluded his humble letter with a message for his ever growing and ever loyal fans.
Addressing them directly, he said, "My request to my fans is that students should give their full attention to studies, those in business and service discharge their duties honestly, respect and abide by laws of the country, have mutual respect for each other and bring in unity by shunning discord."
Not only did he distance himself from the political quagmire, but he also clarified that he doesn't endorse nor encourage the practice of derogating other actors on social media. Overall this move from the actor has been really appreciated by his fans and netizens in general as it sends a strong statement at a time when many actors are looking to enter politics in the state.
