Distributors' Association has decided to ban Kamal and Jayaraj, accusing them both for unilaterally releasing their films on November 25th, even after the Distributors' Association requested them not to release their films before November 27th.
Refusing to pay heed to the association's direction, six distribution companies took initiative to release Jayaraj film Nayika and Kamal's Swapna Sanchari on November 25th itself.
Considering the release of the move as an insult, distributors' association decided to ban both directors and serve a show cause notice to those distribution companies, which released those films.
Responding to the news Kamal said "I feel this ban a comedy. How can they ban me as I am not a member of distributors association. Producer and distributors have decided to release the film. It is my duty to stay with the producer to release the film on 25 itself."
Director Jayaraj was not ready to respond. But he said, he would discuss the issue in the meeting of FEFKA. Secretary of FEFKA, B Unni Krishnan said that he got to know about the ban only from media. If they send a letter officially, surely he would respond to it. However, Exhibitors' Federation said that they would continue providing their support to both the directors in future.
