The recent incident happened between the stuntmen from the South Indian film industries and Mumbai have made Tamil Nadu Stuntmen's Association (TNSA) to act tough on B-Town and other film industries. Well, the association is planning to bid goodbye to other language film industries following the recent dispute.
Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who was basking in success of series of hits in the recent years, has been busy with his next film Mental directed by his younger brother Sohail Khan. But the shooting was unexpectedly halted after an issue cropped up between the action teams of the film.
The dispute between stuntmen from the South Indian film industries and Mumbai halted the shooting of Mental. The director had hired a leading stunt director to choreograph an action sequence. According to the rules of All India Film Employees Confederation (AIFEC), local fighters should be given preference and have to be 70% in films and the fight master could rope in the remaining 30% from his region.
However, the fighters from the stuntmen's team refused to work in Mental and demanded to include 50% of their men from South India. This deadlock put the Salman Khan starrer movie in trouble.
This incident made members of Tamil Nadu Stuntmen's Association to take a tough stand as they have decided not to work in any other language films unless Film Employees' Federation of South India (FEFSI) helps them arrive at mutual understanding over ongoing tussle between action artists from Tamil and Telugu film industries.
