The South Indian Film Artistes' Association (SIFAA), popularly known as the Nadigar Sangam, was established in the year 1952 with stars like MGR, Sivaji Ganesan, Anjali Devi, and Vijayakanth serving as its President.

Actor-politician Sarath Kumar has been the Nadigar Sangam’s President for two consecutive terms – 2006-09 and 2009-12. With the current term, under the leadership of Sarath Kumar, coming to an end in June, the General Body meeting of the Sangam was convened yesterday in which the elections for the year 2012 formed the major part of the discussion.

It was decided that the elections would be held in June this year but the date has not been finalized yet. Further, the contestants for the posts also need to be decided upon. The decisions pertaining to these issues are expected to be announced next month, following which the ball for the Nadigar Sangam election campaign will start rolling.
