Producers and directors including Bharathiraja, SA Chandrasekhar, Lalit, Dhananjayan, TG Thyagarajan, Keyaar, Suresh Kamatchi, K Rajan and others met Kadambur Raju, the Minister of Information and Publicity. The representatives of the film industry asked the Government to reopen theaters.
They also asked to exempt 8% local body entertainment tax so that they can reduce the ticket price to attract the audiences. The film industry wants the Government to grant permission to convert single theaters into mini-plexes and multiplexes. They also want the state to cancel the operator license as the film industry has become digital.
Kadambur Raju has promised them that he would convey their request to the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister. Meanwhile, FICCI has also recommended the Central Government of India to reopen the theaters in Unlock 3.0.
