No special shows of new films in Krishnagiri

The Krishnagiri police have enforced a ban on screening of all special film shows for fan clubs in the district.

No special shows of new films in Krishnagiri


The ban comes in the wake of violence that broke out over delay in screening of special shows of Vijay movie Bigil in theatres in Krishnagiri district in the month of October last year.

However, the ban on screening of special shows has disappointed Rajini fans, who are awaiting the release of his Darbar on January 9. There are around seven theatres in Krishnagiri Town and three in Kaveripattinam. The members of his fan clubs have decided to approach the Collector, demanding to revoke the decision on banning special shows.

The Krishnagiri police officials, led by DSP Kumar, held a meeting with functionaries of various fan clubs and theatre owners to avoid similar incidents this year also.

DSP Kumar said it has been decided not to allow any special shows for fan clubs this year.

Theatres should screen only regular shows. All theatres, including those in Krishnagiri Town and Kaveripattinam, should strictly adhere to the norms. Strict action would be taken against those creating nuisance and damaging public property, he clarified.

‘Nobody sought permission forspl screening’

With just a few days left for the much-awaited release of Rajinikanth-starrer Darbar, nobody has come forward to take permission for premiering special shows ahead of the scheduled release of the movie on January 9, Minister for Information and Publicity Kadambur C. Raju has said.

Normally, permission-seekers would approach the office just a day ahead of the scheduled release date. He said nobody was denied permission for special shows in cinema halls. Permission had been granted to those approached authorities through proper channel.

If the film producer approached the office functioning under his ministry for taking permission for special shows, it would be taken to the knowledge of Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswamy, who would take a final decision on it, the minister told mediapersons at Vanaramutti near Kovilpatti, Thoothukudi district.
