Silambarasan, who had contested for the post of Vice President in the recently concluded 'Nadigar Sangam' elections, has decided to withdraw his membership from the Actors' Association.
The actor has claimed that 'Nadigar Sangam', an association meant to help actors, failed to extend its hand of support when he was facing crisis.
"I have decided to move out of Nadigar Sangam due to various reasons. As an association who are supposed to help actors during crisis or problems, they have failed. I have not got any kind of support when I faced issues," Simbu has told sify.com.
What more, the Vinnaithaandi Varuvaayaa star has said that the recently organized star cricket tournament disappointed him as it made most of the actors look like "jokers".
"The recent cricket match which they (Nadigar Sangam) conducted made me so upset. Most of our actors were made to look like jokers," he has said.
Though Simbu has made it clear that he wants to exit from the Actors' Association, veteran actress Raadhika Sarathkumar has requested him to reconsider his decision.
"This is not their property, it is our association. They did not support you, but you won. Reconsider do not give in @iam_str." Raadhika wrote on her official social networking page.
It is now to be seen if Simbu pays heed to Raadhika's advice.
Meanwhile, Simbu might play a cop in Gautham Vasudev Menon's upcoming flick Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada, as he was spotted wearing khaki on the sets of GV Prakash's Bruce Lee.
Since the shooting of Bruce Lee, which stars GV Prakash Kumar and Kriti Kharbanda in the lead, is happening on the same floor where the shooting of Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada is going on, Simbu took out time to give the Trisha Illana Nayanthara star a visit.
"@iam_str in #brucelee set gvms aym and Bruce Lee happening in the same floor .." GV Prakash posted on his Twitter page along with a picture of himself with Simbu.
