Chennai, Sep 7 (IANS) Actor and MP Sarath Kumar has resigned as president of the South Indian Artistes Association (SIAA).
In a late night statement to the association Thursday, Sarath Kumar said he was 'unable to continue as president of the Nadigar Sangam (SIAA)' due to his 'election' to the post of president of his political party, the AISMK, floated this week.
Sarath Kumar has been getting flak from film artistes and industry workers for making it compulsory for them to give five percent of their earnings to the SIAA.
The levy would be cut from the advances made to artistes when they signed their contracts.
