    Still from Shivaji
    A section of film journalists have decided not to publish any reports on the Silver Jubilee celebrations of AVM's Shivaji and anything about the its forthcoming films. The film company has not invited any of the periodicals and online representatives to the Silver Jubilee function held today at the University Centenary Auditorium.

    When questioned about this, the company CEO Babu told that the Chief Minister Kalaignar Karunanidhi instructed them to restrict the invitations to dailies only. But the Chief Minister's Office (CMO) and Additional Director of Information and Publicity Department Ambalavanan categorically denied this and declared that there was no connection with this private function to any of the departments in the secretariat.

    Later when we enquired, sources revealed that the company had sold out the telecasting rights of Shivaji Silver Jubilee function for a hefty amount to Kalaignar TV and the same will be telecasting on 15 th, the Pongal Day. To prevent the pictures from appearing in the media, the film house is lying and fingered out the CMO as the reason.

    Other sources revealed that MS Guhan, one of the producers of Shivaji has clearly instructed their PRO and office bearers not to invite or reveal anything on Shivaji to the media (even after the completion of its 200th day!). He is also annoyed with the reports appeared in the leading print and online media about the heavy loss of Shivaji in many areas in Tamil Nadu.
