Kaththi is a film which had Vijay and Samantha in the lead roles. This film was directed by A R Murugadoss. This film met so many hurdles, commotions and protests. This film has been released today throughout the world crossing many hurdles.
Asin had paired with Vijay in Pokkiri and Kaavalan. After some time she started acting in Hindi films. At one point of time, while she was acting in a Hindi film, she had to participate in the shooting at Sri Lanka.
There were great protests against this by some Tamil Organizations. She while speaking about this boldly said,” Now I am a Hindi actress. I need not be governed by the rules of Tamil film industry.” Tensed by these words Tamil activists said that they will not permit Asin to act in any Tamil films. So when she lost her market in Bollywood none of the Tamil directors came to her rescue.
At this juncture, some Tamil Organizations have been protesting against Kaththi since the film has been produced by Lyca Productions who are close associates to Sri Lankan president Rajapakshe. Asin in a statement has boldly stated that, ” Cinema is different and politics is different. It is not right for politicians to voice against cinema. I request all Vijay fans to make this film a great success and thus teach the protestors a big lesson.”
