The Tamil film industry on Saturday demanded an unconditional apology from actor Ajith Kumar for his “false statement” at a function here on February 6.

Mr.Ajith’s displeasure over film personalities being arm-twisted to attend social and political events, caused mental agony to the film world. Hence he should apologise, a meeting of film industry associations decided.

On behalf of FEFSI it was decided to strongly condemn actor Rajinikanth’s remarks in support of Mr.Ajith.

As the issue had been resolved amicably, it was decided that no one should talk about it individually or release statements or give interviews in the names of organisations, according to a press release.

Meanwhile, the president of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi, Thol.Thirumavalavan strongly condemned the attack on the house of Jaguar Thangam who objected to Mr.Ajith’s statement. It was a matter of concern that Mr.Ajith and Mr.Rajinikanth had not even issued a statement that they were not responsible for the incident, he said in a statement.
