The double taxation of GST and ET being the highest in Tamil Nadu amongst all states has theater owners and film producers going on a strike with no new releases last friday and this friday too.  Meanwhile the TFPC headed by Vishal held talks with Municipality minister S.P. Velumani and the Theaters Association met Information and Publicity minister Kadambur Raju today and still there is no result in sight.

Meanwhile reports suggest that senior minister Jayakumar has asked the film fraternity to meet the Chief Minister Edappadi Pazhaniswamy regarding the issue.  With just a week for the mega Diwali release of Thalapathy Vijay's 'Mersal' on the 18th which is much anticipated by fans and general public, the big hope hinges on the outcome of what the CM decides on the issue.
