Former Tamil actor to campaign for AIADMK
Vennira Aadai Nirmala, who made her debut in Tamil cinema along with now Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, will be one of the star campaigners for the AIADMK in the Lok Sabha polls.
The ruling AIADMK released its 19-member list of star campaigners late Friday. They will begin their campaign across the sprawling state March 11.
It includes Tamil movie and television artists like movie director and actor Ramarajan, Vindhya, comedy actors Senthil, Gundu Kalyanam, Singamuthu, Kuyili, TV news reader and actor Fathima Babu, and villain actors Anand Raj and Ponnambalam.
The list also includes AIADMK leaders such as Nanjil Sampath, S. Sasikala Pushpa, Parithi Ilamvazhuthi and Vijila Sathyanand.
In 1986, AIADMK founder M.G. Ramachandran wanted to nominate Vennira Aadai Nirmala to the Tamil Nadu legislative council. But this did not happen as a court declared her insolvent.
