In Kerala, Tamil films attract a huge fan base and have been quite high on the collection front too. The recently released Vijay starrer ‘Pokkiri’ has crossed the hundred day mark and other Tamil films are also doing good business there. This seemed to have made a dent in the collection of Malayalam films.
Hence film actors, producers, technical members from the Malayalam film industry have approached the Minister for cultural affairs Mr. M.A.Baby and have put forth their demands.
According to these pleas, the Mollywood fraternity wants the entertainment taxes to be reduced for Malayalam films and increased for Tamil, Hindi and English films. They have also requested the minister to reduce the tariff for shooting at public places. The minister had listened to their pleas and assured them that he will do the needful.
This will be the second similar situation as in the previous year Telugu faced the same problem as dubbed films like Chandramukhi, Anniyan, Gajini, Sandakozhi and Thimiru were major money spinners.
