Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners at the extraordinary general body meeting held on tuesday have decided not to extend support to upcoming films starring Vijay, as the actor “failed to compensate the losses” incurred by them.
Ilaya thalapathi Vijay’s recent films ‘Azhagia Tamil Magan’, ‘Kuruvi’, ‘Villu’, ‘Vettaikaran’ and ‘Sura’, miserably failed at the box office. According to theatre owners, they suffered huge losses by screening these films as they paid a heavy price.
Earlier, they had demanded Vijay pay back 35 percent of the amount to compensate the money they lost and share their burden. This was brought to the actor’s notice and he had said that he would announce a compensation package soon but failed to do so.
Following this, the Theatre Owners have decided that they would not screen Vijay films.
“Since we are yet to get a positive reply from him, we have decided not to extend cooperation to the forthcoming films of Vijay.” Theatre Owners said.
Meanwhile,stills from the actor’s forthcoming film ‘Velayudham’ were released to the media yesterday.

Inspite of all these contoversies,Vijay still stands as the biggest crowd puller to theaters in chennai after Super Star Rajinikanth.
