Ban for interviews and channels' alternate plan for Tamil New Year specials!!
April 08, 2006
Pepsi Uma

It is that part of the year when the battle lines are drawn between TV channels again. Come festive occasions, TV channels fall over each other to lure the living-room audiences with specially packaged programmes complete with previews from new releases, road shows, and star interviews. But this time, looks like the last item on the list may have to go off the agenda. The forced decision comes in the wake of the Producers and Distributors Councils’ recent ban on film artists giving interviews on TV. Which has obviously left the channels in a fix.

In fact, in recent times, the absence of actors and actresses is conspicuous even in popular regional programmes. There is no more star attraction to share the frame with Pepsi Uma on Sun TV’s famous dial-in programme ‘Ungal Choice’. And now, for Tamil New Year, TV channels are trying to rope in interviews with familiar faces like actress Charmee from the Telugu industry to boost their TRP ratings. Looks like the ‘authentic Tamil flavour’ will be sadly lacking in TV programmes this Pudhu Varusha Pirappu.
