Vishal calls on CM to eradicate piracy!

The newly-elected president of Tamil Film Producers Council Vishal, along with other office-bearers called on Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami at the Secretariat and impressed upon him the need to get cracking on piracy and increasing ticket prices in the State.

Vishal, in the representation, has urged the Chief Minister to take efforts to do away with piracy. He requested him to take action against newly-released films being screened illegally in omnibuses and private vans.

‘Cable TV operators should be ordered to stop airing new films,’ he said and added, ‘There is an urgent need to come up with small theaters.’

He was accompanied by secretaries of Producers Council Kathiresan and Gnanavelraja, vice-presidents Prakashraj and Gautham Vasudev Menon besides treasurer S R Prabhu. Also, present on the occasion were filmmaker RV Uthayakumar, exhibitors Abirami Ramanathan and Pannerselvam.

The meeting assumes significance since Vishal had recently announced that unless their demands are not met, they would strike work from 30 May. It effectively means there would be no shoots and no releases.

Sources said that close on the meeting with Chief Minister, the office-bearers of the association would go to New Delhi and submit a memorandum to Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting, Venkaiah Naidu.
