Actor Sivakarthikeyan who has geared up for the release of his upcoming film, Mr Local had recently hit the headlines over voting in South Chennai Lok Sabha Elections despite his name not being listed on the electoral roll. The actor's name was missing from the voter's list and after a lot of argument at the voting booth, Siva was allowed to vote. Soon,  Tamil Nadu Chief Electoral Officer Sathyabrata Sahoo ordered action against the polling officials in Chennai. Well, now after weeks, the actor reacts to the controversy. 

At the press meet of his upcoming film, Mr Local, the actor in defence said, "I am an Indian citizen and it is my duty to cast vote. I have my voter ID and hence I cast my vote. The election commission advises everyone to vote, and it is not my mistake that my name was missing from the voters' list. I voted just like everyone else. I had voted twice earlier in the same location, and even before a month when I checked, my name was on the list. So, I don't need to give an explanation on this."

After casting vote, the actor took to Twitter and showed off his inked finger with the caption, “Voting is your right and fight for your right.”

Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan will be seen in his 13th film, Mr Local opposite Nayanthara.  The film is set to release on May 17, 2019, a day after Vijay Sethupathi’s Sindhubaadh.
