"We people have been here for years. We know the business and its up and downward trends. So, Kuselan matter will not be an issue here after and it would be amicably settled by us. We would request the media not to project anything against the industry without proper evidences or official releases from us!" the report says.
Also the report owes that the members of all the trade bodies will never give independent statements or declarations about any film's business without the knowledge of concerned authorities in future.
Meanwhile the exhibitors association hailed the superstar for his magnanimity and passion towards the welfare of the people of the industry.
"No doubt, Rajini sir is the person who always stands for genuineness, magnanimity and greatness. We have never targeted him at any stage in this issue. In fact we never demanded compensation from him. We have clearly mentioned this in our press statements also. But Rajini sir himself called us and heard our grievances and came forward to settle 35 percent of the MG as compensation. No one in the Industry has such a great heart... We must be thankful to the great soul Rajini sir..." say the members unanimously in the meet.
