The makers of Kaththi are getting favourable response from Tamil leaders despite fringe groups calling for a ban on the movie. The latest person to support the Tamil movie is none other than activist and Tamil film personality Seeman.
There are some groups in the state, which has demanded a ban on Kaththi. They believe that Lyca Mobiles' boss Subaskaran Allirajah, who is producing the Tamil movie, has close business links with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
