Tamil film action heroes lose out in TN assembly polls

Tamil-film-action-heroes-loChennai, (IANS) Although politics and the movie world are well connected in Tamil Nadu, film action heroes appear to have lost out this time around in the state assembly polls.

The actor-turned-politician leader of All India Samathuva Makkal Katchi R. Sarathkumar lost in Tiruchendur constituency against his DMK rival Anitha R. Radhakrishnan.

Contesting under the ‘two leaves’ symbol of AIADMK, Sarathkumar secured only 62,356 votes against Radhakrishnan who claimed victory with 88,357 votes.

At Ulundurpettai, another actor-turned-politician and DMDK leader A. Vijaykant came in third polling 26,950 votes and trailing far behind the candidates from AIADMK (63,906 votes) and DMK (57,850 votes).

An exception to the trend, however, was DMK-nominee Vagai Chandrasekar who has played supportive roles in Tamil movies. Chandrasekar led in Velachery constituency in Chennai against his AIADMK rival C. Munusamy by 8,100 votes.
