Meeting the media, veteran producer Kalaipuli S Thanu requested senior director Bharathiraja not to break the Tamil Film Producers Council. Bharathiraja recently announced the launch of the Tamil Active Producers Association featuring only producers who are currently making films.
"Let Bharathiraja be the President of Tamil Film Producers Council but for the other posts, we can conduct elections. He can do all the good things to the council and let it be the golden period of Tamil cinema. I wouldn't blame Bharathiraja, when I spoke to him over the phone, he told me that the final decision would be taken only after consulting with all the producers. But it looks like, four producers are pressurizing him and released a statement, now to create confusion", said Thanu.
"We have been helping a lot of producers through Tamil Film Producers Council. Starting a new association would ruin the livelihood of many producers", he added.
