Is Shriya Saran the only ambalai (male), the only star with cojones, in the Tamil film industry.
Under the guise of protesting the attacks against Tamils in Sri Lanka, the vekkaketta (shameless) members of the Tamil film industry has stooped so low as to tacitly kiss the derriere of the terrorist organization LTTE, the killers of former Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
Today, November 1, the Tamil film stars even organized an eight-hour Unnavrutham (hunger strike) in Chennai supposedly to signal their support for Sri Lankan Tamils.
Strangely, all this recent outrage against the attacks on Tamils in Sri Lanka and the demand for a ceasefire is happening when the LTTE is struggling in the face of a strong onslaught from Sri Lanka’s armed forces.
For sure, the Tamil film stars will protest that Tamils in Tamil Nadu are only supporting the Sri Lankan Tamils and not the LTTE.
But as we said a few weeks ago:
[I]n our view that distinction does not exist. Without financial support from Tamil Nadu and the Tamil diaspora, the LTTE would probably collapse in a few weeks.
Why are the spineless Tamil film stars not holding a Unnavrutham to demand that India send a commando outfit to capture the terrorist Prabhakaran?
Media reports from India (hopefully accurate) suggest that Shriya Saran refused to attend the Unnavrutham because she was busy with a film in Delhi.
We doff our hat to this brave lady.
