Kollywood has stood by former Chief Minister J.Jayalalaitha, who has been put behind the bars over disproportionate asset case.
The entire Kollywood industry comprising of actors, distributors and exhibitors' associations are observing a day hunger strike today (September 30) in protest against a Special Court's verdict on J.Jayalalaitha. The former Chief Minister has been sentenced to four years in jail, besides a Rs 100 crore fine.
"We plan to fast to extend our support to Amma (Jayalalitha). We can't comment on the verdict. But since she's done so much for film industry, this is the least we could do for her," an Association member told the IANS.
And also, activities related to films has come to standstill and theatres will remain shut today. The film industry has always stood by the ruling goverments. Be it over the Cauvery dispute or the Sri Lankan Tamil issue, the cine fraternity has supported the state government's agendas.
