Rajini, Kamal back Suriya

While Kamal Haasan has supported Suriya for the latter’s speech about the education system, Rajinikanth, filmmaker Shankar, and lyricist Vairamuthu will be sharing the dais at the audio launch of Suriya’s upcoming magnum opus action entertainer Kaappaan on July 21.

Kamal, the founder of Makkal Needhi Maiam, took to Twitter and posted a lengthy statement saying he condemned the “autocratic attitude of the Centre and the State”.

“I agree with many of the points Suriya raises and he has my support. I condemn the autocratic attitude of the Centre and the State,” the actor-politician added.

Expressing concern over the Centre’s National Education Policy at an event, Suriya had people to start discussions and raise questions on the policy, as he felt it had many loopholes.

He said some of the provisions of the policy would leave students from rural areas at a disadvantage. Suriya’s remarks have not gone down well with several politicians of the BJP, including Tamilisai Soundararajan and H Raja.

Meanwhile, as far as Kaappaan audio launch is concerned, as Shankar and Rajinikanth had worked with Kaappaan’s director KV Anand and Lyca Productions in the past, they have readily given their nod to attend the event.
