Following the one-day token fast observed by Tamil Nadu Film Directors' Association ( TANTIS) and Film Employees' Federation of South India ( FEFSI) on March 19, it is now the turn of the Nadigar Sangam to go on a strike in support of Sri Lankan Tamils.

The actors from the Tamil film industry will go on a token fast on April 2 at the Nadigar Sangam premises.

A source in the know says, "The Sri Lankan issue has snowballed into a major talking point after the protests by the college students. The fast called for by the directors' union received phenomenal response but the absence of actors was sorely felt. Now, with top stars like Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan agreeing to be present for this fast, it will only highlight the issue better."

We hear that film shoots for that day have been cancelled and actors who are presently out of station have also been urged to return to Chennai for the fast. (source: The times of India)

    If they are really concerned, why not visit SL first, and identify how they can help if true?
