Kollywood’s Mahabharatha

As spicy as a silver screen story that Tamil Cinema churns, the election at the South Indian Film Artistes’ Association (SIFAA) was none the less. Around 3000-members of SIFAA cast their votes amidst much tension and hecting campaigning to select the team to manage their affairs. Formed in 1952 by M G Ramachandran, Sivaji Ganesan and other leading lights of the film industry, SIFAA planned to extend educational and medical help to poor artistes and dramatists.

SIFAA purchased 99 cents of land in T Nagar, where a new building was constructed in 1977. Allegations of irregularities against Sarath Kumar, former President, and Radha Ravi, former Secretary were made by actor Vishal and his core team of five members named the Pandavar Ani relating to the team manage their affairs. With the Court intervening in the matter, elections were conducted with tight security. Vishal and Nasser addressed campaigns across the state and emerged victorious along with their team members. The election itself was a cinematic event with high profile actors like Rajinikanth and Kamal Hassan, among others, coming in to vote.  The the ten year rule of actor Sarath Kumar-Radha Ravi came to an end paving way to a younger generation, of whom much is expected.
