Dhananjayan, popular producers who aggressively promoted and distributed Anjaan when he worked in UTV was subtly challenged by Nikilesh Surya of Rohini Theaters and Rakesh of Vetri Theaters . Dhananjayan participated in the debate show of Sun News and posted the link on Twitter, he wrote “Yesterday debate in @sunnewstamil…if the Theater owners agree to their word given in this debate of taking care of 70% of the current VPF charges (balance by Producers), the #TamilCinemaStrike will be over is my confidence. Hope they announce this”.
Replying to Dhananjayan, Rakesh tweeted “The decision on the VPF has to be made by the TNFEA (Exhibitors Association) , not by an individual. #TamilCinemaStrike” and Dhananjayan replied “Sir he spoke as the secretary of your association & not as an individual”.
Nikilesh also joined the party, he tweeted “Am I to understand that Dhananjayan sir endorses the views of the council and will not release #MrChandramouli in more than 100 screens?” to which Dhananjayan’s answer was affirmative.
“We will release as advised by #TFPC in the approved number of screens only sir. We will follow the plan for the overall good of the industry”, said Dhananjayan.
