Thangar Bachan: There are lot of cheats in cine industry


Director Thangar Bachan has yet again created a new stir by saying that there are a lot of cheats in the cinema industry.

Filmmaker Shankar’s assistant K.R. Mathivaanan is all set for his debut directorial with ‘Aridhu Aridhu’ whose music release function was held at Sathyam Cinemas last week. While director Shankar released the audio cds they were received by director Lingusamy.

Amongst the list of special invitees were filmmakers Shankar, Thangar Bachan, Vetrimaaran, Lingusamy, and Perarasu, producers R.B. Choudary, Kalaipuli S Dhanu and executive members of TFPC also graced the occasion.

Director Thangar Bachan while speaking at the audio launch said:
“Many new producers who are ignorant about the industry come and lose their money. But in the industry if there are no producers there won’t be any work. Yet, the producers’ lot is quite pitiable. 99% of producers get entangled in borrowing and resulting problems. Only 1% comes out without problems. The producers remain as they were. But those who were introduced by them are successful earning more and more.
Many come to produce films without any definite planning. Therefore, producers need counseling. That should be arranged by the Producers’ Association. But there are a lot of cheats here. Then only the good people and the cheats can be identified. As the rates are uniform in all theatres, no one comes to the theatres. We only are to be blamed for this.

Cinema won’t progress without reducing the rates at the theatres. If the rates are same for a film produced with Rs.50 crore and a film produced with just 1 crore, who will come to the theatres. The song sequences of this film were shot abroad. What is there abroad that is not there in Tamilnadu?”.

TFPC secretary, Siva Sakthi Pandian has replied that their association has been involved in the mission of serving the producers and Thangar Bachan shouldn’t really make such harsh comments before clarifying his allegations.
