The Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association has resolved not to extend “any cooperation” to the forthcoming Vijay-starrer, ‘Kavalan,' and any of his films in future.
The resolution was adopted at the association's executive committee meeting chaired by its vice-president R. Narayanasamy Naidu here on Thursday. Theatre owners across the State have suffered losses on account of screening Vijay's film ‘Sura,' the resolution stated. It had requested the actor to compensate the losses on humanitarian grounds. Since there hasn't been any favourable reply from the actor, the association decided not to extend any cooperation to ‘Kavalan' and the actor's films in future.
The association appealed Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi to exempt theatres from property tax. It also urged him to reduce power tariff for theatres.
“To press these demands and issues relating to exemption of entertainment tax for films with Tamil titles, the members of the association will observe fast in Chennai on February 15,” R. Panneerselvam, general secretary of the association told reporters.
