In a surprising development, actor-turned politician Ambareesh has
resigned to his post of the President of Kannada Artistes
Association today (Friday, December 18). Ambi has stated that he is
upset with the non-cooperation policy of leading actors and that's
why he has decided to step down from president ship.
Rebel star Ambi has sent his resignation letter to the KAA along
with a copy to Kannada film Producers Association (KFPA) and
Kannada Film Directors Association (KFDA) each on Friday. The actor
said, "Despite sending invitation, nobody is attending the meetings
and other functions of KAA. How much can I struggle alone? I've
also grown old and I can't handle this post. To organise any event,
only me, Doddanna and Rockline Venkatesh will be there and others
will be always absent."
He added, "There are actors, who are asking how long Ambi will
continue in President's chair. Now, it seems my service is not
necessary to the industry. So that's why I have decided to resign
from the post. While resigning for the post of MP, I didn't think
twice. This post can't be a big deal for me."
Earlier, Ambareesh was very upset on December 13 when a host of
actors like Dr. Vishnuvardhan, Real star Upendra, Golden star
Ganesh, Dr. Raj family members Shivaraj Kumar, Puneet Rajkumar,
Parvathamma Rajkumar remained absent on the eve of Rajyothsava of
Artistes Association. It is said that on the very moment, he had
decided to step down from the president ship.
However, senior actor Doddanna, producer Rockline Venkatesh,
director Prem have hoped to convince Ambi and bring him back.
