Actress Genelia D’Souza was supposed to be banned from Tamil film industry as she was about to take part in IIFA at Colombo 2010. The awards ceremony was held recently in Ceylon and the supporters of Eelam Tamilians in various parts of India requested every film celebrity in India not to take part.
Similarly, Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Kites’ was instantaneously banned in all the theatres of Tamil Nadu. Now as Salman Khan and Vivek Oberoi has taken part in this festival, the members of FEFSI and TFPC have strongly mentioned that their films would no more be screened at any theatres of South India.
Genelia in her statement said, “I was supposed to fly down to Ceylon for the awards and at the last moment, producer Aascar Ravichandran requested me to cancel my appointment for awards ceremony and I heeded to his requests…”
The actress has completed shooting for ‘Utthamaputhiran’ and is now pairing with Ilayathalapathy Vijay in ‘Velayudham’. The photo shoot was held recently at Balu Mahendra Studio in Chennai.
