Ponvannan's resignation from the post of vice-president at the Nadigar Sangam reportedly over Vishal's recent political development sparked off rumours about the key functionaries in the actors' guild being upset with him.

Putting an end to such speculations, Vishal, the secretary, and Karthi, the treasurer, of the Nadigar Sangam had a small interaction on Twitter, thereby sending out a message that all is well among the members.

On Twitter, Karthi posted a comment to Vishal stating that the construction of the Nadigar Sangam new office is their first priority. He added humour to the conversation by saying that everything can wait, including Vishal's marriage, till the completion of the building.

Vishal responded by posting a picture and captioned it, "Yes Darling Porul @Karthi_Offl for sure by Dec 2018, we are on track !! Always Love my extended family - Nadigar Sangam !! [sic]"

The actor had called the five-member group 'Pandavar Ani' to fight against Sarath Kumar's administration in Nadigar Sangam elections. They had won the elections and projected themselves like Pandavas of Mahabharata.

On Wednesday, December 11, it was reported that Ponvannan had stepped down from the position of vice-president as he was reportedly upset with Vishal for breaking his promise by attempting to contest the RK Nagar by-poll.

The team members had mutually agreed to keep politics out of the council. It was said that the latest development came as a blow to Vishal, who is also under attack from a section of members of the Tamil Film Producers' Council, considering Ponvannan was a key member in the Pandavar Ani.

It was all started after Vishal took a surprise decision to contest the RK Nagar by-poll which was vacant after the death of J Jayalalithaa. He filed his nomination papers as an independent candidate before his application was rejected as the two of his 10 proposers backed out and alleged their signatures were forged.

Nonetheless, Vishal tried his best to contest the election, but his attempt went in vain as the proposers went missing after filing the complaint with regard to forged signatures.
