In another recent interview, actor and politician Sarathkumar said he wanted to nominate his wife, Raadhika Sarathkumar, for a parliamentary seat, equating the roles for which he played in the film “Suryavamsam.” Sarathkumar has led the All India Samathuva makkal Party for over 15 years but has recently merged it with the BJP. BJP has guaranteed his wife, the actor Radhika, a ticket to contest the elections from Virudhunagar.
