A press meet was held recently by the Producers Association and the Tamil Theater Owners Association, to express their views on Kamal Haasan’s DTH release model. The producers lent their full support to Kamal, whereas the other party disagreed and expressed their fear of losing the audience.
Director Bharathiraja, who was also present at the meet, spoke for Kamal and said that this trend would only bring more people to theater. The veteran director also recollected how the theater owners were against telecasting songs in television. “But it in fact brought more people to theaters,” pointed out Bharathiraja. The satellite rights trend, which was earlier opposed, was also pointed out by the producers association.
Abirami Ramanathan and K.R were also present among other officials.
