Nadigar Sangam issues red card to 96 producer

Members of the association have been directed to boycott the production house, Madras Enterprises, for failing to pay the dues owed to Vijay Sethupathi, Vishal and Vikram Prabhu

Published: 10th November 2018

South Indian Film Artistes Association (Nadigar Sangam) today issued a public statement urging actors and other artistes from the Tamil film industry not to work with producers who fail to pay them remuneration for featuring in their ventures.

The Nadigar Sangam, in particular, issued a red card to Nandagopal, the chairman of Madras Enterprises, the production house of the latest hit, 96. It is being said that Vijay Sethupathi was not paid a part of his salary for the project. However, the actor had put up with the inconvenience in order to ensure the smooth release of the film.

Also, Madras Enterprises had apparently failed to honour their remuneration commitments to actor Vishal for acting in Thupparivalan, and to Vikram Prabhu for starring in Veera Sivaji.

Members of the Nadigar Sangam have hence been directed to unconditionally boycott any production venture of Madras Enterprises henceforth.

Reacting to the red card issue, producer Nandagopal has denied all the allegations against him. Also, he has threatened to move the issue to the competition commision of India, if the producers' council doesn't resolve the issue amicably, and clear the blame on him.
