Kalaipuli G. Sekaran Warns Theatre Owners going against Kaavalan

13

Even as Vijay’s fans are eagerly looking forward to the star’s next release ‘Kaavalan’ on Pongal eve next week, the Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners’ Association (TNTOA) has poured cold water over their expectation by means of its statement released in Trichy recently.

The statement reportedly said that unless Vijay compensated the theatre-owners for the losses suffered by them through his last release ‘Suraa’ last year, they won’t be taking up the release of his upcoming project ‘Kaavalan’. In an apparent effort to douse the flamss, ‘Kalaipuli’ G. Sekaran, president of the Tamil Nadu Film Distributors’ Association has issued a press statement.

Sekaran’s statement condemned in strict terms the statement of TNTOA and said that in a profession like film industry, one comes across success and failure quite frequently, so it’s not practically ‘feasible’ to sell anything by force or by extortion and added that in filmy business, no party should demand that it should get profit while the other party can retain the losses.

Such conditions would undermine the very basis of the entertainment business, Sekaran noted. He also said that film producers too shouldn’t demand that their films are purchased on ‘MG’ (minimum guarantee) or ‘outright’ basis by the distributors.

He appealed to all the distributors and theatre-owners to be ‘flexible’ in ensuring that the ‘film express’ has a smooth run and is not ‘derailed’.

  3. yes i totally agree with u.. no actor shld be asked to compensate for the loss incured by producer or theatre owners.. they willingly sign up an actor for their movie or screen their movies in the cinemas.. then why shld the actors take the responsibility?? it’s jus absurd and unreasonable!! grow up ppl!!
