K.E.Gnanavel Raja reveals the reason for contesting in Chennai Distributors Association Election

It is a known fact that Studio Green K.E.Gnanavel Raja recently stepped down from the Producers Council to contest in the Chennai Kanchipuram Tiruvallur Distributors Association Election.

Through an official press statement, Gnanavel Raja has revealed the reason behind his move to contest in this election.

"Everyone will know the motive for my decision to contest in Distributors association after reading this story.

Hyderabad based production company Arka Media Works, sold the theatrical rights of the Tamil version and TN rights of their film Baahubali 2, to S.N.Rajarajan of K Productions. Rajarajan decides to sell the film to individual distributors, district wise, and he sells the Tamil Nadu release rights to Aascar Films V.Ravichandran, signing an agreement. He also receives an advance of Rs.8 crores from Ravichandran.

But then, Anbuchezhiyan enters the scene, who pressurizes Rajarajan to put a second agreement with Mr.Saravanan of Sri Green Productions, which means, he should cancel the agreement put up with Aascar Ravichandran already. With the help of the Current Distributors Association President, Mr.Arulpathi, Saravanan signs the TN rights agreement. Ravichandran is being called for a discussion meeting, where he is pressurized to withdraw from releasing Baahubali 2.

The members tell him he might have to face a big loss if he distributes Baahubali 2, but Ravichandran stays strong in his decision. However, after continuous threats, a renowned producer and distributor like Ravichandran is being made to back off from distributing the film.

Once he backs off, Anbuchezhiyan now locks Saravanan with his plans. Fortunately, the film is sold for a good price of 24 crores, which goes directly to Anbuchezhiyan. The TN rights of the movie was sold for 34 crores, which makes a business of 70 crores (share) at the TN box office. But, till now, the producer of the film, hasn't received any share of collections, that he should've actually got.

The current association members, Arulpathi and Padur Ramesh, make use of these problematic situations to improve their personal welfare, having a mutual understanding with Anbuchezhiyan. Problems like these happen for every big film, and who knows, it might happen even for Ajith's Viswasam.

So, to make sure, problems like these, do not repeat again, I am contesting for the President post in the coming elections, on behalf of Namma Ani. Our team will also be contesting in the upcoming Madurai Distributors Association Election which is expected to happen soon."
