5 popular Kollywood stars contesting in TN elections

Udhayanidhi, who turned active in politics over the last few years, has often been non-committal about contesting in elections in earlier interviews, maintaining that it was up to the party to decide if he has to be fielded in elections or not. Despite criticisms of nepotism, he will now be contesting from the Chepauk constituency in Chennai, from where his late grandfather, Kalaignar Karunanidhi, contested last. After filing his nomination on March 15, he met the various leaders of DMK’s alliance parties and the various communities who make up his constituency and sought their support.
