Will Vijay’s Kaththi face a ban? Find out!

The film is produced by Lyca productions which belongs to close aide of Srilankan President

It is well known how Tamil Nadu had a soft corner for LTTE and how a furor had erupted after the assassination of LTTE supremo Prabhakaran. Looks like now a popular Tamil film may face some serious opposition due to the Srilankan connection to it. AR Murugadoss’s directorial Kaththi starring Illaya Thalapathy Vijay and Samantha may face a ban as few Tamil minority groups have opposed the film.

Apparently, the film has been produced by Lyca Productions which is owned by Subaskaran Allirajah, who is a close aide to Srilankan President Mahendra Rajapakshe. This has not gone down well with Tamil fringe groups who blame the Sri Lankan President to be responsible for killings of thousands of Tamilians in Sri Lanka.

Aygaran International chief Karunamoorthi clarified,”We are a very respected company and have been in the business of cinema for over two decades and distributed nearly 2000 Tamil films in the foreign market. As far as Kaththi is concerned Lyca Productions is funding us. Lyca communications is a multinational that have operations in India and Sri Lanka.”

It is not the first time when a movie has faced opposition due to its Srilankan connection. Bollywood film Madras Cafe, which was based on LTTE operations was banned in Tamil Nadu. In recent times Sri Lankan film With You Without You was banned for it tells a story on backdrop of Sri Lankan war. Will Vijay’s Kaththi face the same fate as the above mentioned films? Or will Vijay’s star power silence the protestors? Only time will tell.
