Chennai: The conference film starring Silambarasan has been released in theaters from 8 am today. As the conference film was announced to be screened as a special show at 5am today, screenings are starting from 8am due to a problem there as well.
The conference film directed by Venkat Prabhu and produced by Suresh Kamatchi and starring actor Silambarasan has been released. The conference is scheduled to release with a film close to Deepavali. But Udayanidhi’s Red Giant acquired the rights to release the film.
Don’t ask us if we can see the head or the hand ..
Producer Suresh Kamatchi said that the conference will be released for Deepavali after that. This is said to have irritated the eyebrow image side.
It was at this point that the producer of the film, Michael Rayappan, raised the issue of the finances of the film. As a result, the conference had difficulty in releasing the film and could not compete with the film close to Diwali. The Tamil Nadu government has further shocked the fans by announcing that it is mandatory to go to the cinema for 2 days to be vaccinated as the conference film will be released on November 25.
Complaints arose among the film crew that the result of the collision with the large space had thus been pushed into a state of distress. It was at this point that Silambarasan suddenly broke down and cried during the conference. Uttamchand, one of the main sponsors of the film, has urged Suresh Kamath to pay the money he owes as he agreed before the release, as the Michael Rayappan Conference film production team has already settled. But business did not go as planned as the film was shot. So there was a situation where that money could not be repaid.
The film will not be released
It is in this context that Suresh Kamatchi yesterday announced on his Twitter account that the film will not be released as planned. This came as a shock to theater owners, distributors and Indian fans. Negotiations had started behind the scenes as the theatrical rights of the film had been bought for Rs 11 crore and if it was not released on the specified day it would face huge repercussions.
Financier Madurai Anbu Chezhiyan has donated Rs 10 crore to the conference film production team. They also asked the artiste TV for the conference film and instead paid six crore rupees for the intervention of Udayanidhi Stalin. Silambarasan is currently starring in the film Vendu Thaninathu Kaadu. The producer of the film, Ishri Ganesh, has donated Rs 3 crore. Silambarasan’s mother, Usha Rajender is said to have arranged around Rs 3 crore. All debts have been settled and the film has just been released.
Did Udayanidhi Stalin help?
Artist TV got Rs 6 crore from the purchase of this film. DMK supporters say this was aided by Udayanidhi Stalin. At the same time, one party has been commenting on social media that the act of cradling a child is a cradle-to-cradle affair and that the purchase of the film for their TV channel cannot be said to have helped, let alone claimed to have taken advantage of the situation. The controversy will only end if Silambarasan or the production team releases details of what happened, who helped, and who caused the harassment, as both sides claim. But the chances are slim, say Kollywood circles.
