Vijay’s 55 film Talaiva was released worldwide but not in its own state, the film was released two weeks back but still has not hit screens in Tamilnadu, makers of the film have decided to fight on this issue and has asked permission from police commissioner for an hunger strike, Vijay himself may be leading this hunger strike.
Here is the letter from makers to Police commissioner.
Thalaivaa was released worldwide on the 9th of August. However, due to a few threat letters and calls to the theater owners of Tamilnadu, the movie has not been released in Tamilnadu. The producers and the distributors are bound to face heavy losses because of this. Moreover, pirated DVDs are being circulated around the state because of the delay in the release.
As there is no action taken despite repeated attempts made by us, we have decided to go on a hunger strike on the 16th or 17th of August at any venue permitted by the government. Vijay, Sathyaraj, Amala Paul, Producer Chandraprakash Jain, Director Vijay, Music Director G.V. Prakash, Cinematographer Nirav Shah, Lyricist Na. Muthukumar and all the other actors and technicians involved in the movie will participate in the strike.
I kindly request you to grant us permission for the same.
On behalf of Thalaivaa team
S. Chandraprakash Jain.
