Worst Phase of Tamil Film Industry
The Tamil film industry is very large in South India. Rajinikanth, Kamal Haasan, Prabhu Deva, Vijay, Ajith are among the famous stars here. The Tamil film industry produces over 200 films annually.
The work in the Tamil film industry has come to a standstill since the lockdown announced since the Corona epidemic. No kind of shooting is going on yet nor has any Tamil film been released on the big screen in recent times.
There are many people associated with the film world whose livelihood depends on daily work, but the life of these people has become miserable since the lockdown was announced.
There is a lot of difficulty in living with no means of income. However, Selvamani, president of the film Employee Federation of South India, said that he has helped such people on behalf of the association.
Federation members say how long he will live on someone’s mercy. Until the work of the Tamil film industry starts, life will be like such a mountain for them.
The corona epidemic will bring a big change in the coming days, not only in the Tamil film world. Films are now being released online as well, increasing the concern of the producer.
For those who have made a film at a high cost, releasing films online is a loss because it will not earn that much. However, some people now see it as a better option as well. If this is the case then the OTT platform is a better platform for the release of films.
In the last 3 months, the Tamil film industry has incurred a loss of over 600 crores. Even if the lock-down situation continues and shooting is not allowed, the damage will continue to increase.
The biggest problem in this lock-down is the producers who started the film work by taking loans and are unable to complete it. In such a situation, interest in this pollution is increasing and even the work is not completed.
There are about 50 such films that were to be released but people are not able to release due to the down. While the filmmakers are being harmed, the theater owner is also not deprived of the ill effects of the lock-down.
There are a total of 1040 large and small cinema theaters in Tamil Nadu. Over 20,000 people work in these theaters. These employees are allowed to work hard to the tune of 20 crores. But ever since the lockdown, there is no one to ask these theater staff.
Theater owners demand that the state government waive the electricity bill and property tax of the cinema theater until the work is started. Apart from this, local body tax should also not be taken from them.
