Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan are two celebs in the Tamil film industry who are also into politics. The two stars have often commented on hot-button issues in the state. At the moment, the state is hit by cyclone Gaja which has wreaked havoc in certain coastal towns. At a difficult time like this, the two veteran actors have reached to offer support and praise to the people.
Taking to the micro-blogging platform, Kamal Haasan applauded the state government for the efforts they have taken in the wake of cyclone Gaja. He added this proactive effort is a welcome relief considering the bitter experiences the people of the state had in the past when disaster struck. The Ulaganayagan also appreciated the relief efforts from the police and media volunteers.
Rajinikanth, who seldom uses social media also took to Twitter on this occasion and relayed his comfort to the people who are suffering from the cyclone. Thailavar also congratulated the officials of the state for their efforts in providing relief and urged them to continue doing so until the disaster is over. Overall, it is great to see such big stars showing moral support at a difficult time like this.
Before this incident, the two had also commented on the issue that Vijay's film 'Sarkar' created. Strongly condemning the way the state government had a crackdown on the film, they had demanded the censoring of certain scenes even after the AR Murugadoss directorial had been cleared by the CBFC.
