Organizing committee of Chennai Film Festival hesitates to invite actor Vijay

The Centenary Celebrations of Indian Cinema are to be held between September 21st and September 24th in Chennai. The event is to be inaugurated by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa.  Indian President Pranab Mukherjee is to preside over the grand finale.  South Indian Chief Ministers and movie stars are to participate in the festival. 


Cine giants as Rajini, Kamal Haasan, and Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan are to participate.  Arrangements have been made for cultural programs by film artistes from every state. 

The Film Chamber is forwarding invitations to everybody for participation in the festival.  A separate team has been formed, and invitations are being forwarded to more than 10, 000 people. 

Although there is no political bias in the event, invitations are being forwarded only after receiving clearance from government regarding who should be invited. 

The organizing committee is hesitant to invite actor Vijay and his father SA Chandrasekaran. The reason is that both Vijay and his father SA Chandrasekaran earned the wrath of the government following issues with regard to movie ‘Thalaivaa’. 


Reports are that, invitations would be forwarded to both Vijay and his father SA Chandrasekaran with subtle request not to appear for the festival.
