Few days ago, Kollywood witnessed high drama when the Producer’s council president, Vishal, was arrested by the police after he tried to enter the council’s office. Thankfully, the judge ordered the police officials to release him, immediately, and this has strengthened Vishal’s claims that some producers within the industry have been doing all sorts of things to push him out of his post.
In a recent interview, when Vishal was asked why is he being targeted repeatedly by few producers within the industry, the actor-turned-produced made some shocking claims. “These disgruntled elements feel I will be contesting Lok Sabha elections in 2019. I don’t know why that should intimidate them. All I know is, they don’t want radical changes in the Tamil film industry. All along, the entertainment industry has been working in a particular way. Anyone who tries to make it more organised, more transparent and corporate-like, more like a professional industry, is bound to be seen as a threat to the status quo” Vishal stated.
He also added that he will not be contesting in elections anytime in near future. Currently, the actor and his team at TFPC are planning to organise a concert with Ilayaraja and the funds raised from this are going to be used for welfare activities.
