Sun TV has reportedly instructed its authorities that none of the sequence or songs from the film ‘Kalavaani’ should be shown on its channel.
The recently released ‘Kalavaani’, which stars ‘Pasanga’ fame Vimal – Oviya in the lead, appears to have come in for wholesome praise from distributors, theatre-owners, critics and the public alike. The film, which is liked by all for its clean presentation, has been produced by Naseer, who is the manager/PRO of actress Trisha.
Naseer reportedly sold the satellite broadcasting rights of the film to Vijay TV, which appears to have triggered more problems than he might have anticipated.
Though Naseer is quite happy that the film has received good reviews and is doing reasonably well at the box-office, he is said to be facing serious problems which have prevented him from going in for a publicity glitz to promote the film further.
The satellite broadcasting rights of new films are usually competed among themselves mainly by Sun TV and Kalaignar TV. Even if both these channels miss out on getting the broadcasting rights of a particular film, they won’t shy away from relaying on their channel the advertisement, songs and clippings from the film in order to promote it, albeit after getting paid for the same.
In the case of ‘Kalavaani’, though, Sun TV has reportedly instructed its authorities that none of the sequence or songs from the film should be shown on its channel. The reason given by them is the ‘unreliable’ attitude of Naseer, who showed his film ‘exclusively’ and separately to the two ‘heirs’ of the State’s ‘big’ family who have been in to distribution and production even as Sun TV was negotiating with him about the cost of the rights.
Now, Naseer is said to be scratching his head as to how to pacify the leading channel in Tamil Nadu.
