The producers" guild has decided to blacklist ETV, Gemini TV and
MAA TV. The reason is that the council had requested the channels
to telecast the trailers of the soon to be released films free of
charge. But while other channels had agreed, the three channels
refused to do so.
The producers" council has said that while the channels make the
rounds of the offices of producers and takes CDs of clipping
regarding forthcoming films and air them freely, they refuse to do
so for trailer. The council has also asked all producers to stop
the three channels from attending audio release functions and film
muhurats. A big advertisement was released in the papers on Sunday
in this regard.
