Actor Vijay, who is facing a red card from Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners' Association (TNTOA), has got much relief after Tamil Nadu Distributors Association (TNDA) has come forward to support the troubled actor. It has slammed theatre owners for trying to block Kaavalan from its release.
Kalaipuli G Sekaran, TNDA chairman, has urged the TNTOA to abide by the rules of the association and follow business ethnics. He has said that profit and loss are two faces of a coin and we cannot point our fingers at one for the loss. Will theatres refund audience money if people complain that the movie is not up to the mark, he questioned.
On Thursday, the TNTOA announced that the association will not co-operate Vijay's movies as he has failed to compensate 35% of the loss of his 50th film Sura.
However, Producer Aascar Ravichandran has reportedly convinced the theatre owners in South Tamil Nadu. He is also in talks with other regional exhibitors. As of now, he has managed to get 400 theatres, says a source. However, the Vijay-Asin Thottumkal starrer Kaavalan negative prints are ready and the movie bosses are said to be dispatching abroad by Sunday evening.
