Simran: From item numbers to poll arithmetics

Simran’s dialogue delivery skills would be put to test, as she can’t do a retake in the poll campaign. As expected, there would be more focus on Simran’s attire during the current campaign.

Simran along with the other film artistes stood in a line and waved at the crowd. The massive crowd went mad, shouting, shrieking and jumping up and down on the plastic chairs. Simran, clad in jeans, light kurta and a bandhini duppatta looked beautiful and charming. She looked more scholarly in spectacles than a glamorous film star.

They kept a mike at the centre of the stage so that all could see Simran well. As an afterthought, a stool was brought for her to stand on. Simran stood really tall on it, and first made the victory sign which is also the symbol of Iratta Ilai. The crowd went berserk making the sign back at her and shouting and screaming.

From a piece of paper, Simran read, "Namma chinnam Iratta Ilai. (Our symbol, two leaves). The crowd repeated after her. "Amma namma leader." The crowd cheered loudly. "Ammakku vote pottal, nalla roads, no rowdism, no water problem," she said. Once again, she said, "Namma chinnam?" The crowd answered, "Iratta Ilai."

I wonder whether Amma has gifted the following book to Simran.

BTW, Amma’s friend Badar Sayeed (ADMK candidate for the Triplicane constituency) might also need a copy of this book.


  • I dont think the crowd will convert as vote. If Simran is coming to a town means, will DMKians are not eager to see her. Anyway, Simran will be paid with a monthly salary

  • I feel these artists turn out to be hollow soap-box orators.

    I heard Mr.Bagyaraj (director) campaign for DMK on Sun TV. His speech was totally cinematic and hollow. Worthless !

    Is it not a bad move on Amma's part to resort to such tactics ... or is it Hobson's choice since DMK is doing the same with 2 Rs/kg rice and Color TVs ???

  • TamilNadu is going so cheap in politics these days. It happens only in Tamilnadu.
    In any other state in India, can u go and campaign for the local bodies ???. Nenju proukku dhillaye Indha nilai ketta arasiyalai ninaithu vittal :(.
    People shud teach a lesson to DMK and ADMK now.

  • @Karthikeyan,
    You are right. The film stars will be paid on a daily basis. They will disappear once the polls are over.

    Amma is using star power to woo voters. I don't think the public are going to fall for this. the voters have seen filmstars come and go.

    are u asking us to vote for DMDK?

    Badar Sayeed contested from South Madras during the previous elections and it was told that she doesn't know Tamil. I doubt whether things have changed in the last 3 years.
