Sashikanth of Y NOT Studios, the producer of one of the most ambitious film 'Vikram Veda' Says : I am not sure when was the last time cinema theatres in TN were shut down, but i am pretty sure these are unprecedented situations currently prevailing. When other state government across India have recognised the idea of GST and reformed their local taxation system, why has the TN government alone not taken any of these reform measure yet ?

This government simply wants to hold the industry and the producers at ransom, so they can extract their pound of flesh as bribes on the pretext of giving tax exemption, at the time of release. This systemic plunder has to stop.

I appeal to all with a voice, specially the stars among us, who will be able to propagate the truth to the people, faster and wider, to come out with your opinions in a much more concerted way and address this issue in the best possible manner you deem fit.

Your voice needs to be heard loud and clear, now more than ever.

Vikram Vedha release postponed indefinitely

The Madhavan-Vijaysethupathy cop versus don action thriller Vikram Vedha directed by Pushkar and Gayathri due for release on July 7 has been pushed indefinitely.

The producer of the film S Sashikanth says : “ There is complete shut down of cinema theatres in Tamil Nadu our core market, so it is not possible to release on July 7. We have no clarity when the strike will be called off, hence the postponement.”

Vikram Vedha has got an A certificate and producer has gone to the Revising Committee, for an UA certificate.
