In his appeal, he has sought to restrict the number of prints supplied for a film per area.

(This corporate entertainment company only controls 400 theaters in the state!)
After submitting the memorandum Thankar told, "Being a person from the cinema world, our Chief Minister can understand the depth of appeal. He also assured me to do something to solve the issues. I hope a lot on him…"
