According to theatre owners, Vijay has done seven films in the last five years. Out of Aadhi, Pokkiri, Azhagiya Thamizh Magan, Kuruvi, Villu, Vettaikkaran and Sura, only Pokkiri fetched normal profit. Other films made huge losses to the theatre owners. Particularly, his recent release Sura made unbearable loss to both distributors and exhibitors.
To compensate the losses, the theatre owners are asking Vijay to do a film exclusively for them. If Vijay refuse their demand, they are planning to issue a red card to the actor and will not screen his films in future.
To discuss the issue, theatre owners will hold an emergency meet tomorrow, May 22, in Chennai.
Vijay is in deep trouble because of his continuous failures. After Sura bombed at the box office, the exhibitors of Tamil Nadu have called for an emergency meeting to discuss the status of screening forthcoming films of the actor.
