Vishal to meet Rajinikanth soon

Close on the heels of meeting actor and Makkal Needhi Maiam chief Kamal Haasan, Tamil Film Producers Council chief Vishal has said that he would call on actor-politician Rajinikanth once he returns from Himalayas. 

Speaking about his meeting with Kamal Haasan, Vishal, said, 'We discussed about the Tamil cinema strike. I met Kamal to know his thoughts. Plans are on to soon meet Rajinikanth soon'.On the strike, Vishal, said, 'More than the strike, we are seeing it as an opportunity to revamp the industry. We are continuously holding meetings with various powerful bodies of Kollywood'.

He said, 'Tamilnadu is the first state to impose double taxation. Though the Government reduced local body tax from 30 per cent to 8 per cent, producers are unable to face the burden. Because of the double taxation, ticket fee has been increased and people stopped visiting theaters for small budget films'.

On the tiff with Digital Service Providers (DSPs), Vishal said, 'When we shifted from print to digital, we were promised that there would be decline in Virtual Print Fee (VPF). But it is not the case. We end up paying more today.

AT a time when very few come to theatres, we end up burning a huge hole in our pocket'. He also said that they are firm on their demand. 'The DSPs should come for an agreement understanding the travails of producers and the VPF charges must be reduced, he said and added, 'We will bring players from other States, if DSPs fail to come to terms'.
