Chinmayi announced that her nomination to contest the election for South Indian Cine, Television Artistes and Dubbing Artistes Union, popularly known as the dubbing union, had been rejected ‘despite the fact that my interim order says I have all the rights to be a member’. She was running for the post of president.
She had further tweeted, “Mr Radha Ravi has won ‘Unopposed’ and they rejected my nomination it seems. I dont understand how the Honorable Retired Justice Sri Ravi decided I am not a member when the Court says so. The point of having an election officer is to make sure that the elections were conducted in a far manner. And then said election officers decide I am not a member of the Dubbing Union based on whose orders? Mr Radha Ravi’s orders? Anyway I’ll take this up legally. Mr Radha Ravi will have to stand opposed.”
