Now that Vijayakanth‘s DMDK has tasted victory by winning 29 out of 41 seats it contested in the Assembly polls, everyone was eager to know the reaction of Vijayakanth to Vadivelu‘s attacks against him during the election campaign.
Speaking to reporters at the DMDK headquarters in Koyambedu, the Captain said, ‘Annadurai once said ‘long live criticisers‘. This is my answer to those who attacked me during the election campaign.’
The actor-politician, who is now the Opposition leader in the Tamilnadu Assembly, added:
‘Only because of such persons (Vadivelu) and their attacks, we have won so many seats. My thanks to them.’
The former president of South Indian Film Artistes Association added that Tamil cinema would witness a change in the AIADMK regime. ‘I will do my best for my colleagues in the industry,’ he added.
