The Tamil Film Producers Council, Chennai, has issued red cards to four prominent actors for their alleged misconduct with the producers. The decision was taken in an executive committee meeting yesterday, and has come as a bit shocking to the entire film Tamil industry.
Following a complaint filed by producer Michael Rayappan, who funded the blockbuster Anbanavan Adangadhavan Asaradhavan, Silmbu fell for the red card. And according to the complaint, Vishal failed to account for the money of the association when he was the president of the council. Atharva, who was also accused of not responding properly to the complaint, was also red-carded.
Earlier in June, the Tamil Film Producers’ Council (TFPC) has reportedly issued a warning to Simbu, Vishal, SJ Surya, Atharva and Yogi Babu, five popular actors in Kollywood for their non-cooperation and involvement in controversies. But now the card issued for Dhanush, Simbu, Atharvaa, and Vishal as per reports.
The red cards are a severe punishment for the actors, as they will not be allowed to work with any producer in Tamil cinema until further notice. The red cards have sparked a lot of reactions from the fans and industry insiders, who have expressed their opinions on social media.
This red card means that the actors will not be allowed to work in any Tamil film until they clear their dues or settle their disputes with the producers. The red card can have a devastating impact on an actor’s career, as it can affect their reputation and future opportunities.
The four stars who are currently in trouble have not responded to the allegations yet. They are all busy with their upcoming projects and have a loyal fan base. It remains to be seen how they will deal with this situation and whether they will be able to avoid the red card. As the actor will be banned from acting in any Tamil film until the issue is resolved, it is yet to be seen whether Vishal's upcoming release Mark Antony, and Dhanush's Captain Miller to get released without any effect.
