Thalapathy Vijay showed up at the event which was organized to showcase the silent protest of Tamil industry against the issue of sterlite and cauvery. Vijay being the disciplined person he is, he arrived at the event before any of his colleagues as Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan came in a little late. Vijay is a very integral part of Tamil film industry and one of the biggest stars of all time who thrives in Tamil cinema hence it is almost his responsibility to take the stand for his industry and strike could be cancelled.
Entire Tamil film industry is on an indefinite strike hence a lot of films are not getting a release and being postponed. Most of March, no film is released in Tamil theater which came from Tamil cinema hence the entire chain of production is getting affected. Shooting of all Tamil films have been stalled including Vijay’s upcoming film ‘Thalapathy 62’ being directed by AR Murugadoss. This film is suppose to release on Diwali but since the shooting is not happening makers can’t be sure of the release. Kamal Haasan, who has newly joined politics also came to address the issue.
Thalaivar Rajinikanth came and joined the rest of industry and has his own rest of problems to deal with the protest because his film ‘Kaala’ which was suppose to come out on 27 April might be further delayed. Tamil industry is rather organized and does not believe in giving anybody more or less space because they are stars hence they might be releasing the films that were suppose to hit the theaters on March in April hence the April ones would have to be shifting their dates. Rajini already has ‘2.0’ pushed quite a lot even without the strike and does not seem to release which is why ‘Kaala’ being delayed is a sign of trouble.
