The final warning call of Nadigar Sangam to the actors who were not members of the association that they will not be able to work in Tamil films if they don’t become a member by August 15 has been taken seriously by the artistes this time.
As the young stars realised the association meant business this time hurriedly applied and became members. ‘Angadi Theru’ Magesh, ‘Kalavani’ Vimal, Genelia, Hansika Motwani, Sameera Reddy and many others have become members for the first time. So far 32 new members have been added to Nadigar Sangam
But all eyes were on Aishwarya who has been doing only the biggest of the biggest Tamil film at a time. Even Radha Ravi publicly requested her to become a member of NAdigar Sangam at the Endhiran audio launch in Malaysia. But even after the deadline of August 15 passed there was no word from Aishwarya rai.
But when we enquired some sources they said Aishwarya has agreed to become a member and has requested to send in the application to Mumbai and she will submit it at the Nadigar Sangam office when she is in Chennai next.
Finally, Aish to enroll as Nadigar Sangam member
After 11 years and around 6-7 Tamil films, actress Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan has finally decided to fall in line and become a member of Nadigar Sangam. The Sangam’s Secretary and actor Radharavi appealed to the actress almost directly at the audio-launch of ‘Enthiran: The Robot’ held in Malaysia last month to become a member of the Sangam like any other actor/actress.
Daughter-in-law of Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan and wife of another superstar Abishek Bachchan, Aishwarya had been acting in Tamil films for a long time now, right from her debut in Shankar’s ‘Genes’ to her latest ‘Enthiran: The Robot’, again directed by Shankar. For some reasons, though, she hadn’t enrolled as a member of the Sangam making tongues wagging about it.
Radharavi had made it clear that ‘whoever’ failed to enroll themselves as members of the Sangam by August 15th won’t get any cooperation from the Sangam and its affiliated bodies after the stipulated date. Aishwarya has accepted this and had reportedly told Sangam’s office-bearers to fill-up her enrolment form and send it over to her Mumbai residence so that she could sign it and hand it back to them during her next visit to Chennai.
The Sangam has also asked newcomers too to become members by enrolling themselves with it. It is said that recently, 32 newcomers have enrolled themselves as members. A list of those who haven’t yet become members of the Sangam is being prepared and they might face ‘blanket ban’ from the Sangam and its affiliated bodies in future, it is informed.
