Tension prevailed outside a theatre complex at Chromepet, a southern suburb of Chennai, Monday morning, after more than 100 fans of Vijay assembled outside the cinema hall to stage a protest.
According to them, several posters of their matinee idol starrer film ‘Kavalan’, which hit the screens on Pongal day, were ‘deliberately’ torn and damaged by miscreants. The fans also alleged that the police failed to take action when they filed a complaint.
Alleging that no case was registered against those involved in the ‘act’, angry fans raised slogans demanding immediate action against the wrong-doers. A large number of policemen were deployed at the spot.
It is to be noted that a lot of uncertainty prevailed over the release of ‘Kavalan’ till the eleventh hour. Vijay fans are of the opinion that a ‘powerful force’ has been working against their matinee idol.
