A non-cooperation motion
Salman Khan’s love story with Sri Lanka got many villains. As the star is shooting for Ready in Sri Lanka, which is a remake of the Telugu hit with the same name, the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce, SIFCC, has decided to launch a non-cooperation motion against the film which also stars South actress Asin.
The drama started when IFFA decided on Sri Lanka for their annual award ceremony and South film fraternity unanimously decided to stay away from it as a way of protest. SIFCC also decided to boycott Bollywood actors and technicians who performed at the IIFA awards in Sri Lanka. Another organization Film Employees Federation of South India, FEFSI, is reportedly still upset from Salman and Vivek Oberoi. Both the actors openly challenged the decision of the South Indian film industry to shun IIFA in Colombo.
However, it was Salman who requested director Anees Bazmee to shift shooting location from Mauritius to Sri Lanka for ‘Ready’. Though the Hindi version is a Bollywood project; nothing like this should affect the movie, but yes it can pose a problem for the people who are busy shuffling their career both in south film industry and Bollywood. Film’s main lead Asin is also one such actress.
Asin is all set to mark the second beginning in the Tamil film industry with Kaavalkaran opposite Vijay.
