An article written on the Sri Lankan defence ministry website has created a furore in the state. It has been criticised even by the opposition parties. After coming under the scanner, the article and offending images have been removed from the website but the anger over the issue has continued in Chennai with Kollywood (Tamil films) staging a protest demanding the Sri Lankan embassy in the country to be shut.
The entire film fraternity comprising of film actors, directors, cinematographers, technicians, producers and theatre owners have joined hands in the protest held in Chennai on Monday (August 4). We bring you the photos of the event...
