There is a tug of war between producers and theater owners on who should pay VPF. The strike of TFPC also continues without any further development. Two theater owners in Chennai have come out and criticized Tamil Film Producer Council’s actions.
“Someone make me understand this, Initially Telugu film chamber started the strike saying VPF is high and then other southern state producers joined them to protest against DSP’s, now they all have gone back to normalcy after the reduction in VPF, so the agenda of TNFPC was false”, tweeted Ruben of GK Cinemas.
“This producer’s group is highly influenced by the kodura arasiyalvadhi characters they make in their movies. Won’t listen to me eh? Current a cut pannu! Innum kekalaya, thanniya cut pannu! Such hooliganism behind the mask of a strike for revamp!”, tweeted Nikilesh Surya of Rohini Cinemas.
