Kollywood smells trouble after Modi's announcement

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement on Tuesday night to demonetize Rs 500 and 1000 currency notes to fight black money, fake currency and corruption has been welcomed by many.

Though by and large Tamil cinema was cheering the announcement, yet fear looms large on the immediate impact of the decision.Sources in the industry say this will have an immediate fallout on the movie releases this Friday.

According to a theatre-owner in the suburban Chennai, 'A couple of films including Achcham Yenbadhu Madamayada are hitting the screens. The online bookings are encouraging, but we are afraid that there won't be many coming to buy tickets at the counter.

Also we are apprehensive of canteen and parking fee since Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 are no longer valid'.'Though the situation may ease in the coming days, we have just a couple of days left for the weekend releases. Hope all things settle down'.
