DMK’s youth-wing secretary and the Chepauk-Thiruvallikeni constituency’s MLA Udhayanidhi Stalin was sworn in as the Minister for Youth Welfare and Sports Development on Wednesday.

Following this, while addressing the journalists, the actor-politician revealed that his upcoming film with filmmaker Mari Selvaraj, Maamannan, will be his last as an actor. He further clarified that he would no longer be part of the earlier announced project with Kamal Haasan’s banner Raaj Kamal Films International. “No, I am not acting anymore. I was supposed to act in a movie produced by Kamal sir. When I told him about my decision [not to act in it], he blessed me. The last film would be Maamannan with Thiru Mari Selvaraj,” said the actor.

It now remains unclear as to how the Kamal Haasan project will move forward. Notably, Udhayanidhi’s banner Red Giant Movies had distributed Kamal’s blockbuster hit Vikram.

Meanwhile, Kamal congratulated Udhayanidhi on Twitter on being sworn in as a minister.

Now, it also remains unclear as to whether Udhayanidhi will continue film distribution under his banner.

Mari Selvaraj’s Maamannan stars Fahadh Faasil, Keerthy Suresh, and Vadivelu opposite Udhayanidhi. The film has music composed by AR Rahman.
