Actor KB Ganesh Kumar, who has recently become the Minister for Forest affairs in Kerala, has revealed that he is not quitting acting for politics. The actor-turned-politician addressed the media after announcing the Kerala State Film Awards on Sunday and said that he would act in films if he gets good roles.
"One can term a person as an ex-minister or an ex-legislator, but not as an ex-actor. For a professional in the field of acting, the career goes on. I will also act while being a minister, if I get roles," the IANS quotes KB Ganesh Kumar as telling reporters during announcement of the Kerala State Film Awards.
KB Ganesh Kumar has been given the additional responsibility to look after the film industry. The Malayalam actor is very happy because he is the first actor in the country to get such a responsibility. He says that he will discuss with all sections of the film industry and find practical solutions to their problems. He is also planning to increase the number of theatres in Kerala.
