In a bizarre twist, the Tamil Film Producers’ Council (TFPC), through an urgent press release, denied reports that they had formed a new technician’s union. This, despite an official statement from TFPC president Vishal Krishna’s spokesperson that he’d formed the outfit to look after the needs of technicians working in the Tamil film industry.
Through the latest statement, TFPC said that they’d merely handed over new identity cards to members of the Outdoor Unit Association. It was in no way the launch of a new technician union.
An earlier press statement had said that Vishal and the Outdoor Unit Association’s president Muthusamy had jointly launched an outfit to replace the older union.
