All the trade bodies of South Indian Film Industry including the powerfull FEFSI have accepted to remove the one year ban on Director Saami with a pre dated resolution from 30th April. Saami, known for his work in controversial Uyir and the recently released Mirugam was banned for a year for slapping actress Padmapriya in the sets of Mirugam last year. The ban was imposed on him last October.
But after the release of Mirugam, Saami got an offer to direct a film with Rajkiran in the lead. He appealed to the president of Tamil Film Producer Council to reconsider the year long ban on him, which prevents him to give a good cinema in right time.
Considering his request, Rama Narayanan convened an urgent meeting to discuss issue yesterday. Representatives from all the trade bodies attended the meeting and within few minutes they approved unanimously to revoke the ban on the director. This order would be implemented from 30th April, i.e., a week earlier to the meeting held.
Expressing happiness at the ban being revoked, Saami said, "hereafter, I will show my ability through my films and my movies will talk for me."
