Tamil Nadu Producers Council president has come down strongly on multiplex owners. The ongoing three way tussle between multiplex owners, Tamil Nadu government and Producers council is far from being resolved.
Multiplex owners are against reducing ticket prices while producers council wants the ticket prices to be reduced. The government is firm on not rolling back the local entertainment tax. With all these issues in mind Vishal has asked multiplexes to implement the following rules
1. Amma Drinking water should be available in all theatres and audience should be able to bring their own water.
2. Packaged items should be sold at MRP.
3. Parking ticket should be government mandated.
4. There should be no surcharge on tickets during first day shows and weekends.
If they violate any of these rules action will be taken. With the logjam continuing Mersel release is in doubt.
