It seems like a famous quotation in Tamil: If an elephant falls in a ditch, an ant too not paying its due respect to the mammoth and passing the ditch with a smile (Yaanai Kuzhikulla vizhuntha Erumbu kooda etti parthi sirukkumam!). Whenever the Cauvery issue arises in the state, the first person being targeted by everyone is Superstar Rajini. Is it possible to solve all the disputes over Cauvery, if Rajini quits from Cinema?
Film personalities and political leaders always target the country's top Box Office star whenever they get a chance. Yesterday, veteran actor Bharathiraja has also done the same cliche when he met the press to announce his entry in small screen. When media persons questioned him about his absence at the hunger strike organised by Nadigar Sangam, the director immediately targeted Rajini.
Just have a look on his reply, "When I organised a mega rally against Kannadigas in Neyveli to protect our rights over Cauvery, Rajinikanth didn't attend the rally and observed a fast individually in Chennai. If the trade bodies of the Tamil Cinema Industry seek any explanation from me for my absence in the fasting now, then I would also demand an explanation for the fast observed by Rajini 6 years ago."
The director, who was visibly in adamant mood, has also replied that he wouldn't send any explanation to the Film Chamber or the organizers of the fasting so far. "I don't like to send any such explanation to any one. Also there is no need for that," the director said.
What a 'wise' argument!
