Cauvery issue: Tamil film industry calls for IPL boycott


Tension's are running high across Tamil Nadu over the Centre's delay in forming Cauvery Management Board. Now political parties and outfits have demanded that Indian Premier League (IPL) matches not be held at a time when the state was witnessing widespread agitations on the vexed issue.
Pro-Tamil outfit Tamizhaga Vazhvurimai Katchi (TVK) today warned of picketing the MA Chidambaram stadium, if the IPL stuck to its Chennai calendar, with the city all set to witness its first contest on Tuesday.

A host of cinema personalities also wanted the matches to be postponed. “It is an embarrassment to think of IPL at the present situation in the state. At least the members of the Chennai Super Kings should wear a black band during matches to express solidarity with the protesting groups,” said Superstar Rajinikanth. Actor Sathyaraj also shared a similar sentiment, saying the IPL matches in the present situation will become an unwanted distraction for the people.

Veteran filmmaker Bharathiraja has also requested the BCCI to postpone the IPL tournament in Tamil Nadu. Director Ameer reportedly said a delegation of film artists will be meeting the Governor on the same matter.
