Will continue my journey towards Cuddalore to participate in #VelYaatrai #Police are investigating the case. #LordMurugan has saved us. My husband’s trust in him is seen.”

The actor-turned-politician recently resigned from the Congress party after alleging that she was being ‘pushed and suppressed’ by people who had no connect with ground reality. Hours after resigning from Congress, she joined the BJP on October 12, just months before the Tamil Nadu polls. As per reports, she was upset that she was not given a ticket in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and BJP has promised her to provide a seat in the 2021 Assembly Elections.
The noted actor, the wife of Tamil filmmaker Sundar C, has 200 films, soap operas and television shows to her credit.
