Tamil Film Strke
Kollywood is on a strike following a standoff with Digital Service Providers (DSPs). In addition to it, the Tamil Nadu Theatres' Owners' Association has now announced another an indefinite strike asking the state government to abolish 8 percent local tax along with a few other demands. As a result, the film-related activities will come to a standstill from March 16.
