The Film Employees Federation of South India is upset with the producers of Kamal Haasan’s Bigg Boss 2 as they are using nearly 75% Mumbai crew members and only 25% of the workers are from FEFSI.
As the show is being produced by Endemol Shine India who introduced many shows in Hindi, they have roped in crew members from Mumbai. Even for the first season of Bigg Boss (Tamil), FEFSI raised this issue and after Kamal Haasan’s intervention, 50% of local workers were hired by the show producers.
FEFSI says that they will not allow the shoot of Bigg Boss 2 to happen in Chennai until the show producers agree to the existing terms and allow 50% of their workers.
FEFSI’s President RK Selvamani and key members of the association will be soon meeting Kamal Haasan regarding the ongoing issue against Bigg Boss 2.
