Simbu has cleared the air on reports that he passed inflammatory remarks on the issue. “I’m currently in Thailand, completing the last leg of shoot for my film “Acham enbathu madamaiyada”.
Today I was informed by well wishers, as well as my father, about my ‘apparent’ comment on the sensitive cauvery issue. As a responsible citizen I’m aware of my role and clearly understand my limits too. I have not made or given any statement on this issue.,” said Simbu in an official statement.
“This is an issue between two states, and not a platform for artistes to engage in propaganda or take lightly. The elected leaders of both states with the support of the judiciary will provide us a solution.
The best we can do is to pray for a good monsoon that can provide prosperity and peace to both the states. I also hope that at no cost should this issue jeopardise the relationship between the PEOPLE of these two states, who have coexisted as neighbours.”
I hope we are able to overcome this crisis soon. I reiterate that I will be the last person to garner publicity by issuing political statements that could endanger the peace of both these states,” added Simbu.
