Veteran actor Rajinikanth just issued a statement about the ongoing rift between the Tamil Nadu Film Producers Council and the FEFSI , urging both parties to discuss the situation in a professional way. He went on to add that the FEFSI’s decision to go on a strike would not reap any results.
“One of the very few words which I don’t like is ‘strike’ (velai nirutham). Whatever the problem might be, we can find a solution to it, by discussing and speaking through polite and humble words. On that note, as a senior actor in the industry, I request Producers Council and FEFSI union to sit together and discuss and come to a positive conclusion very soon,” he added.
We sincerely hope that the standoff between the two parties comes to an end ASAP and that too in the most peaceful way possible.
In case you did not know, the FEFSI union has been on a strike since yesterday. They want their wages to be increased. However, Tamil Nadu Film Producers Council is not ready to accept their demands. As a result of this situation, the shootings of several films have been affected and several more films are likely to suffer in the near future.
On a related note, this is a busy time for Rajinikanth. He currently has ‘Kaala’ and ‘2.0’ in his kitty. ‘Kaala’ is touted to be a crime-drama and features him in the role of a gangster. On the other hand, ‘2.0’ is a sci-fi thriller and has been directed by S Shankar.
