Producer K.E.Gnanavel Raja reveals the reason for contesting in Distributors election

Popular producer K.E.Gnanavel Raja, who stepped down as the Secretary of Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) yesterday evening (December 5), will now be contesting for the President post in the upcoming Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association Election. He has officially released a press statement, regarding the same, which is as follows:

"I (K.E.Gnanavel Raja) am running my production house, 'Studio Green' for the past 14 years. But everyone, in the industry, knows that it is not a happy moment. The suicide of my industry friend Ashok Kumar has impacted me so much.

My friend Ashok committed suicide directly, and when I got to know the reason behind the suicide, I got to know that, a few section of associations have gone into the control of few powerful individuals. Though the whole industry knows this harsh truth, they feel scared to come out and speak. As a responsible person in the industry, I can't keep myself out of all these burning issues.

So, keeping in mind, the future of the film industry, and to make sure that no suicides like this happen again, I at this moment announce that I will be contesting in the Chennai Kanchipuram Thiruvallur District Film Distributors Association election, which is happening on December 24.

As I had to contest in this election, I resign as the Secretary of TFPC. I have been receiving various threats, and I know I will continue to get much more threats. But, I do not fear about that, and all I want is the development of our industry. I request the industry friends to support me, for the good cause of developing our film industry's growth. I have delivered my best that I could, as the honourary secretary of the Producers Council in the last eight months.

I thank all the press, media, and friends for supporting me, all these days. I also seek your blessings and support for winning this upcoming distributors election."
