As an actor Udhayanidhi Stalin, the hero of Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, has nothing to complain about. The BO collections and the rave reviews have given the debut actor a high. However, the producer in him is not that happy. In a recently convened meeting with media persons, he expressed his concern as a producer and the troubles he has been facing for his Red Giant Movies.
His latest release OKOK under his home production is yet to get the Entertainment Tax exemption. Drawing a comparison with the film 3, he said that U certification and tax exemption has been easy for 3, but his movie’s fate is still at stake.
He also said that as a producer he had to face trouble in getting a U certification for OKOK and said that he had to face several hardships for releasing the film that he even had to file a case in the High Court, to get the certification done on time.
He stated that his travails started off with his film 7am Arivu as it did not get the Entertainment Tax exemption on time. He also listed the names of movies which got tax exemption during the same time without any delay such as Velayudham, Marina, Kondan Koduthan, Kadhal Pisase, Kadhalar Kadhai, Nanban, Vettai, Nanga and a few others.
He alleged that the Government is trying to bring in politics in to his business venture, since his family is in to politics. He added that it just not troubles him, but the distributors and others who are associated with the film.
