Producer Suresh Kamatchi has insured the entire team of his next film, Maanadu, including the actors, to a tune of Rs 30 crore, paying a premium and GST of about Rs 7.8 lakh. The heart-warming initiative, taken before commencing the shooting of the film starring Simbu, has come in for much appreciation from all quarters.
Speaking to DC, Suresh said “I feel it is my responsibility to safeguard the lives of my team. Though I started the shoot on February 19, I had insured my team much ahead of the day the major crane accident took place on Indian 2 sets. I am always particular about the safety of the film workers and team.”
“Being insured has many advantages,” he continued. “It helps not only during freak accidents, but also if shooting gets disrupted due to rains or other natural calamities. Even if the shooting gets delayed when actors/technicians don’t arrive on time due to flight delays, we are covered.”
Suresh adds that he is particular that he honours salary commitments to his workers on time....
