An article written on the Sri Lankan defence ministry website
has created a furore in the state. It has been criticised even by
the opposition parties. After coming under the scanner, the article
and offending images have been removed from the website but the
anger over the issue has continued in Chennai with Kollywood (Tamil
films) staging a protest demanding the Sri Lankan embassy in the
country to be shut.
The entire film fraternity comprising of film actors, directors,
cinematographers, technicians, producers and theatre owners have
joined hands in the protest held in Chennai on Monday (August 4).
We bring you the photos of the event...
