Anbu Thozhi, a maiden film of politician turned actor
Thol Thirumavalavan has been facing troubles from the Censor Board
of India, Chennai region. The Board has raised objections to the
leader's appearance as the leader of Sri Lankan rebels Velupillai
The officials at the Censor Board denied certifying the film
contending that the scenes in the film hail the LTTE leader. It
maybe recalled that Thirumavalavan had said a few months ago that
the film fights for a good cause and the story is mainly based on
the life of the LTTE supremo Prabhakaran.
Now Thirumavalavan has decided to knock the doors of revising
committee to get the approval to screen the film. He was already
informed the matter to the Chief Minister Karunanidhi, seeking his
help to get rid of the problem. Last year, the revising committee
had approved a movie filmed on the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.
Though the story of the film is closely linked with the LTTE and
their activities, the board hasn't raised any objections and gave
few cuts to the film and allowed its release with U/A
Meanwhile, Thirumavalavan, the leader of Viduthalai Chirutahikal
Katchi has signed two more films in Tamil. Kalagam is the
one among his new project and Mu.Kalanchiyam, the director of
Poomani and Poonthottam is going to direct it
after a long gap. Since Thiruma is going to sing the duet with the
heroine for the first time in this film, the director is taking
much careful in selecting a suitable heroine for the leader.
