Anjukku Onnu once again in trouble?

This film talks about the travails of construction workers
Some of the various reason that films in K’town run into trouble includes title issues, alleged plagiarism of scripts and objectionable content. The latest film to be dragged into controversy is Anjukku Onnu, directed by RVR. This film talks about the travails of construction workers.
Ponkumar, who heads the Tamil Nadu Construction Workers Welfare Board is said to object the release of the movie fearing it might show the women workers in construction industry in a poor light.
Speaking to DC, the director said, “Without watching the film, Ponkumar has spoken to a vernacular newspaper that the film is trying to project women (sitthal) who work in construction sites in poor light. They are spreading incorrect news about the film. Also, it is not his place to object. The scenes that he wants removed have already been certified by the censor board.”
He added, “Even if he assumes that the film portrays construction workers in a bad light, he could have approached me or the producer, Shanmugam or any one of the industry bodies to get his facts correct. By his act of speaking to a newspaper, he has spoilt the business prospects of our film. We don’t know his motive. We wonder, if he trying to extract money from us? We strongly condemn Ponkumar’s act.”
