With the present tenure of office-bearers of Tamil Film Producers Council, the supreme body of Tamil film industry led by Kalaipuli S Thanu. T. Siva, Kadhiresan, P.L. Thenappan, Radhakrishnan in prime positions coming to an end, elections to TFPC were announced to take place on February 5, 2017. With several teams planning to cast their members and compete in the forthcoming elections, actor and Nadigar Sangam Secretary Vishal surprised all on Sunday by announcing actress/politician and producer Khushbu Sundar as his team’s Presidential candidate for the upcoming TFPC election.
One may recall that Vishal was temporarily suspended from TFPC membership a few weeks ago and the actor said he has been suspended because the producers’ council was unhappy with him asking “right questions.” And he added that he will continue to raise his voice for the welfare of all producers, mainly small-time producers. He also asserted that a team of youngsters from his side will be contesting the council elections.
Candidates for other positions will be announced soon, added Vishal. When DC contacted Khushbu, she said,, “I consider it as an honour for the trust Vishal’s team has in me that I would be able to handle the big responsibility of heading the TFPC. I am not averse to it. Let me think about it”.
