It is one year since SA Chandrasekaran took office as the Tamil Cinema Producer Council head. The opposition headed by Mukta Srinivasan has decided to bring in no-confidence motion against him quoting reason that he does not have sufficient management abilities.
In meeting held in Chennai, headed by producer – director Mukta Srinivasan, Panju Arunachalam, Kayaar, G Sekar addressed the media. Mukta Srinivasan spoke:-
‘The council was started in 1971. Among seven people in the council then, I am the only one alive. I am 83. I have done more than 40 movies. Although I have had experience, it pains me to be in such a council. I do not have personal enmity towards SAC. But I feel that he does not have any credibility to be head of a council.’
‘There should be at least one among credibility, talent, speaking ability, management ability and ability to comply with people. He does not have any of those features. He does not know what should be done for downtrodden producers. During yesteryears, the council functioned with responsibility. Reason is that the heads were like that.’
‘This place is one headed by Vasan and Reddy. SAC does not cooperate with anybody. He does not show up at the council. He does not respect the old members. He resorts to police for no particular reason. Totally, his service to council is nil.’
‘He could hand over responsibility to others. He would not do that. He does not release circular for members of producer council. He does not know activity of the council. I can quit this council and start off a new council. It would not be befitting. I utter one final word to SAC. If you have self-respect quit the council. Give way for others’
‘Further, SAC misuses his position such that his son Vijay comes into politics. He has not shown the accounts of the council properly. He has not gathered a general body meeting formally. The coming 25th, the meeting would be called for and the new head would be chosen’ said Mukta Srinivasan.
