‘Thalaivaa’ not to hit screens in Tamil Nadu

Chennai – Chengalpattu district Theatre Owners Association has announced that movie ‘Thalaivaa’ would not be screened without cooperation from government. 

Decision had been made to screen Vijay starrer ‘Thalaivaa’ in more than 500 theatres in Tamil Nadu, and in few other countries. 

The movie is hitting screens in Kerala, Andhra, Karnataka, and Mumbai.  Announcement has been made that the movie would be released day after tomorrow.  Now, there are hassles to the movie’s release. 

Present scenario raises doubt whether the movie would hit screens for now.  Very since the movie was titled ‘Thalaivaa’, there have been hassles to the movie.  Reportedly, the ruling party is dissatisfied as Vijay’s father SA Chandrasekar made addresses with aim of making his son the next Chief Minister. 

Reportedly, as the movie story centers politics, there is no tax exemption or privilege for the movie.  Producer of movie ‘Thalaivaa’ announced that the movie would be released in 2000 theatres across the globe on August 9th, i.e., day after tomorrow. 

Within few minutes of the news release, reservations were stopped.  Theatre owners started saying that they would not screen the movie. 
An urgent meeting was called for by Chennai – Chengalpattu District Theatre Owners Association. 
Theatre owners announced: -

‘Movie ‘Thalaivaa’, which is considered as against the government, could only be released with cooperation by government, and with security for theatres.  As there is no assurance for both of these, we feel that it would not be conducive to release the movie now.  So, we have decided to cancel screening of the movie in Tamil Nadu.’

Also, theatre owners have added that they would review screening of the movie only after government assures cooperation and security to theatres.
