Asin is being in the news for wrong reasons since her visit to Srilanka for shooting with Salman Kahan for her upcoming Hindi film ‘Ready’. Despite the ban threats from South Indian Artistes Association(SIAA), the actress went to Srilanka and also visited the war-torn places with the Presidents wife on note of a eye camp organised by the government.
While Nadigar Sangam had reported that the decision would be taken by joint consultative committee soon, the Federation of Tamil Associations of North America (FETNA), an umbrella body 36 Tamil organisations across the United States and Canada, said on Monday that it would boycott films starring Asin because of her visit to Sri Lanka.
Palani Sundaram, the chief of FETNA said, “The Federation of Tamil Sangams of North America will boycott films of Asin because of her visit to Sri Lanka despite a ban by the Tamil film industry.”
When asked about this ban, Asin said, “As an actress I cannot be held responsible for the selection of shooting spot. To respect Tamil’s feelings, I was stayed away from IIFA award ceremony.”
“I met with Nadigar Sangam president Sarath Kumar in this regard. I am ready to abide by the joint committee’s decision”, she added.
The Member Sangams abiding to this decision are
