Vishal had announced a complete shutdown of the film industry from May 30. The strike was mainly to address the problems the film industry is facing currently like piracy, GST, ticket pricing and other welfare issues.

However since the announcement of strike, he has faced opposition from theatre owners and distributors. They are currently enjoying the success of Baahubali and are unwilling to close the shutters.

Vishal here thereby called off the strike and is yet to announce future course of action. Some movies like Jayam Ravi’s Vanamagan had postponed their release due to the strike. Tough luck for them.
