Actor Vijay, who is facing a red card from Tamil Nadu Theatre
Owners' Association (TNTOA), has got much relief after Tamil Nadu
Distributors Association (TNDA) has come forward to support the
troubled actor. It has slammed theatre owners for trying to block
Kaavalan from its release.
Kalaipuli G Sekaran, TNDA chairman, has urged the TNTOA to abide
by the rules of the association and follow business ethnics. He has
said that profit and loss are two faces of a coin and we cannot
point our fingers at one for the loss. Will theatres refund
audience money if people complain that the movie is not up to the
mark, he questioned.
On Thursday, the TNTOA announced that the association will not
co-operate Vijay's movies as he has failed to compensate 35% of the
loss of his 50th film Sura.
However, Producer Aascar Ravichandran has reportedly convinced
the theatre owners in South Tamil Nadu. He is also in talks with
other regional exhibitors. As of now, he has managed to get 400
theatres, says a source. However, the Vijay-Asin Thottumkal starrer
Kaavalan negative prints are ready and the movie bosses
are said to be dispatching abroad by Sunday evening.
