The Tamil Nadu Milk Dealers Welfare Association (TNMDWA), in a letter routed to the Commissioner of Police, Chennai, is looking for a changeless restriction on the act of praising the arrival of huge star films with paal abishekams (pouring of drain) on their goliath patterns and pennants.
The paal abishekam is a wonder in the south, particularly in Tamil Nadu, where in a clear articulation of star revere, fans pour liters of drain on monster patterns and flex pennants of their star’s film notices. The more terrific this presentation, the more dominant the star should be. The paal abishekam is a typical event amid first-day-first-shows of enormous stars in theaters. The convention originates from the religious routine with regards to pouring milk over gods in sanctuaries.
Censuring this training, TNMDWA individuals claim that fans will in general take drain parcels from drain merchants amid such festivals, along these lines influencing the merchant’s job. They have likewise asked for police security outside drain merchants’ shops and drain dispersion focuses upon the arrival of the film’s discharge to keep away from such incidents.
Their request comes following actor Simbu’s video where he’s heard asking his fans to celebrate the release of his upcoming film, Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, like never before, urging them to pour cauldrons of milk over his cut-outs.
This is in contrast to another video he’d released where he’d made an entirely different request.
While in one he had asked his fans not to celebrate the release of his next film, Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven, but instead buy something meaningful for their family members, in the other that was posted a few days later, Simbu asked his fans to celebrate the release like never before, asking them to pour cauldrons of milk over his cut-outs.
In the letter routed to the Commissioner of Police, Chennai, the TNMDWA has asked for move to be made against the on-screen character whose recordings, they fear, may result in peace issues. “By prompting his fans to celebrate as such, Simbu’s ask for might bother other stars’ fans, subsequently bringing about a conflict between groups,” peruses their letter.
Simbu’s Vantha Rajavathaan Varuven is preparing for discharge on February 1, a couple of days in front of the star’s birthday. It was initially slated for a Pongal discharge and the film would have conflicted with Rajinikanth’s Petta and Ajith’s Viswasam.
