Filmmaker RK Selvamani has been elected as the president of the Tamil Film Directors' Union, following an election conducted on Sunday. The Pulan Visaranai director had a comfortable victory over his competition, CR Vidhyasagar, by securing over 1,400 of the total 1503 votes polled.

It is to be noted that this follows protests from some members of the union over filmmaker Bharathiraja being elected as president, outside of elections. The union was then split into two camps led by Ameer and RK Selvamani. With the nominations of Ameer and SP Jananathan being rejected by the election officer, Ameer and his team, which included Vetri Maaran, Samuthirakani, and Balaji Sakthivel, withdrew their candidatures, expressing their lack of belief in the fairness of the elections.

Directors RV Udayakumar and Perarasu have been announced as the general secretary and treasurer, respectively.
