Biggies asked to come on festive days only

The Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) made an announcement that from June 1, all films that are made on a budget of Rs 15 crore and above will have to mandatorily release their films only on ten pre-determined holidays (Pongal, Republic Day, Tamil New Year’s Day, May Day, Vinayaka Chathurthi, Independence Day, Deepavali, Vijayadasami, Ramzan and Christmas).

The move is ostensibly aimed at making it easier for smaller producers and filmmakers to have a level playing field. TFPC President Kalaipuli S Thanu said, There are several dangers and problems in allowing big budget films to hold monopoly over the box office, especially If smaller budget films stop being made.

This is not good for business nor is it healthy for the cinema industry. That is why this decision has been taken by the Executive Committee and the General Body.
