Thalaiva Team's request to the Commissioner

Aug 16, 2013

The Thalaivaa team met the city police commissioner to request for permission to go on a hunger strike following the delay in the release of Thalaivaa.

Below is the letter (translated to English from Tamil) to the Commissioner from the team.

Respected Sir,

Thalaivaa was released worldwide on the 9th of August. However, due to a few threat letters and calls to the theater owners of Tamilnadu, the movie has not been released in Tamilnadu. The producers and the distributors are bound to face heavy losses because of this. Moreover, pirated DVDs are being circulated around the state because of the delay in the release.

As there is no action taken despite repeated attempts made by us, we have decided to go on a hunger strike on the 16th or 17th of August at any venue permitted by the government. Vijay, Sathyaraj, Amala Paul, Producer Chandraprakash Jain, Director Vijay, Music Director G.V. Prakash, Cinematographer Nirav Shah, Lyricist Na. Muthukumar and all the other actors and technicians involved in the movie will participate in the strike.

I kindly request you to grant us permission for the same.

Yours Sincerely

On behalf of Thalaivaa team

S. Chandraprakash Jain
