'Trisha should forego a part of her salary if she fails to come for film promotions'

...said producer T Siva in a pre-release promotional event of Trisha's 60th film, Paramapatham Vilayattu

Published: 22nd February 2020

In the pre-release promotional event of the upcoming Tamil film, Paramapadham Vilayattu, starring Trisha in the lead role, the actor was, obviously, the centre of attraction. However, the reason was not just Paramapadham Vilayattu being the 60th film in her career. Trisha's absence in the promotional event became the central point of discussion in the event, which was attended by veteran director K Bhagyaraj, producers K Rajan, T Siva, Suresh Kamatchi, and other important members of the cast and crew of Paramapadham Vilayattu. 

Calling out Trisha for not being part of the promotions of her own film, Amma Creations T Siva said, "A women-lead film like Paramapadham Vilayattu definitely needs the proper promotions, and it is disappointing that Trisha hasn't turned up at the event." He went on to add that it is imperative Trisha takes part in other promotions ahead of the film's expected release date of 28 February. "If Trisha doesn't promote the film, then we'll have to take necessary action through the Producer's Council, and she will be urged to forego a part of her salary as compensation," said Siva. This was an emotion that was seconded by Suresh Kamatchi, who is currently bankrolling the Venkat Prabhu-Silambarasan TR film, Maanaadu, which faced a lot of issues before going on floors last week. "Do they think they become bigger stars if they don't attend press meets, media interactions, or meet their fans?" asked Suresh Kamatchi. 

Veteran producer K Rajan, who was one among the many dignitaries to congratulate composer Amrish on his work in the film, took the opportunity to ask comedian Yogi Babu to complete his dubbing for a film, which has remained in the cans for too long now. " It is sad that people are forgetting their roots and people who acted as an important stepladder in their careers," he said. 

While veteran filmmaker K Bhagyaraj avoided commenting on Trisha's absence in the promotional event, he did commend Paramapadham Vilayaatu director Thirugnanam for broaching such a sensitive subject. He also joked about how this film passed the censors considering its central plot point. Bhagyaraj joined the list of dignitaries to praise the performance of young Manaswi, a child actor who is famous for her role as Nayanthara's daughter in Imaikka Nodigal. In Paramapadham Vilayattu, the young actor plays Trisha's daughter, who has a speech and hearing impairment. 

Paramapadham Vilayaatu, which stars an ensemble cast including Vela Ramamoorthy, AL Alagappan, Richard Rishi, Sangeetha, and newcomer Vijay Varma, has Trisha playing a doctor. The film has sequences inspired by the hospital stay of later Tamil Nadu chief minister, J Jayalalithaa.
