Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi criticises govt for abrogation of Article 370: ‘It is against democracy’

After Kamal Haasan, Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has spoken against the abrogation of Article 370 while Rajinikanth had supported the Centre’s move.

Tamil actor Vijay Sethupathi has criticized the government’s move to abrogate Article 370 without consulting the Kashmiris. Vijay Sethupathi expressed his opinion on a radio channel called SBS Tamil Australia. The Hindu quoted him as saying, “It is against democracy. Periyar has already spoken about this. Can I interfere in someone else’s affair? One can show that they care about someone, but cannot impose their decisions on someone else. The move saddens me.”

The actor was recently in Australia to attend the Indian Film Festival in Melbourne. He was awarded for his role as a transgender in his film, Super Deluxe. 

Vijay’s comments had the internet divided with some supporting him and others speaking out against him. One user wrote on Twitter, “I salute #VijaySethupathi for his clarity of thought, humanity, and the courage to speak, while so many are silenced by fear. A clear contrast to the morally bankrupt, intellectually challenged, pseudo-Hindu, yesteryear Star, desperately trying any means to regain fading glory.”

In contrast, another user wrote: “ROTFL. Previously same VS backtracked after giving out an opinion saying he hadn’t fully read about it! If you support DMK POV it automatically becomes “clarity of thought, humanity”! ???If you don’t support DMK’s POV obviously he/she is wrong & abuse starts - #Rajinikanth !”
