The Tamil Film Producers’ Council along with the Outdoor Unit Association have launched a new body that will uphold and look after the interests of technicians working in the Tamil film industry. The outfit was launched recently by TFPC President Vishal Krishna and Outdoor Unit Association’s President Muthusamy.
This outfit is expected to replace the older association that is widely considered to be the cause of the fallout between Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI) and the TFPC. Members of the older union had stalled the shooting of Billa Pandi, without consulting FEFSI. As a result, they were suspended from FEFSI earlier this year.
According to a recent press release, members from the older body were allowed to join the outfit launched by Vishal.
The actor addressed the concerns put forward by the technicians and assured them of his full and constant support.
