TN Producers Council urges CM to eradicate piracy menace

Chennai, May 12 (UNI) Actor and newly-elected President of Tamil Film Producers Council Vishal, along with other office bearers today urged Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami to take steps to eradicate the menace of piracy and hike the ticket prices in cinema theatres.
Vishal and others met the Chief Minister at the State Secretariat and submitted a memorandum in this regard.
He requested him to take action against newly-released films being screened illegally in omni buses and private vehicles.
He also urged Mr Palaniswami to take steps to ensure that cable TV stop airing new films.
Vishal also stressed the urgent need to set up small theatres.
The meeting assumes significance since Vishal had recently announced that if their demands were not met, they would strike work from May 30.
It effectively means there would be no shoots and no releases.
Sources said that close on the heels of the meeting with the Chief Minister, the office-bearers of the Council would visit New Delhi and submit a memorandum to Union Minister for I and B Minister M Venkaiah Naidu.
