Arulpathi

In the Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association election, leading producer and distributor Gnanavel Raja was defeated by Arulpathi by 54 votes. Arulpathi, backed by the controversial financier Anbu has won 248 votes whereas Gnanavel got 194 votes and thus, the latter lost the opportunity to become the President of Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association. 

Only a few weeks back, Gnanavel stepped down from his General Secretary post from Tamil Film Producers Council to contest in Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association elections.

Ever since the suicide of co-producer Ashok Kumar, Gnanavel is voicing against Anbu and thought that by becoming the President of Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association, he can eliminate the financier's supporters who have issued indirect red card to many films in the past but the Singam producer has to wait for another two years to execute his plan.
