A preview show of the film Dam 999 was scheduled at the Prasad Lab Studio in Chennai yesterday. However, the preview show was cancelled following a protest by the MDMK.
Party activists who took part in this protest were arrested by the police for disturbing the peace in the area. The protest against the film was due to the fact that director Sohan Roy has based this film on the controversial Mullai Periyar Dam.
Reacting to this protest, the director has said that once the film is released, the Tamil Nadu government will realize the peril that this dam would cause to the Tamilians and would agree to construct a new dam after demolishing the existing one.
