Shooting in Kollywood has been stalled because of the ongoing FEFSI strike. Many movies like Vignesh Shivan’s Thaanaa Serndha Koottam and Rajinikanth’s Kaala has stopped production. Even the post-production work of Vijay’s Mersel was delayed due to the strike.
FEFSI (Film Employees Federation of South India) and Tamil Film Producers Council have finally reached a agreement after almost two weeks of strike. FEFSI had demanded that the wages of heroes be normalized and their salary fixed.
They had protested saying the high salaries of heroes is the cause for losses and the industry bears the brunt of it. Producers council president Vishal has assured that he will take measures to revise the salary of male leads also said that they will quote correct box office figures from now on.
Film shootings have started and Vijay’s Mersel will arrive in time for Diwali.
