Throughout my tenure within the Tamil Movie Producers Council (TFPC) a couple of years in the past, we proposed a ten% pay minimize for actresses who skip promotional occasions. It was carried out for a while, however recent elections to the Producers Council and the rise of recent commerce our bodies triggered confusion within the business. We had requested producers to retain 10% of the remuneration to be paid to actresses and settle the quantity solely after they attended promotional occasions. I follow my stand that actresses ought to promote their motion pictures — it’s skilled ethics. They appear to have ample time to inaugurate purchasing malls, however can’t spare time to advertise their motion pictures, which is unlucky. — Producer Keyaar, Former TFPC President
