Screening of 'Uttama Villain' stalled

Situation turned tense at Urvashi Theatre on Friday morning, when the screening of a Tamil movie was interrupted. The police immediately rushed to the spot to prevent any untoward incident. 

According to the police, the screening of the Kamal Hassan starrer ‘Uttama Villain’ was stalled due to financial dispute between the distributors and the producers. There is no confirmation yet on the release of the movie, said police sources.

Thousands of people had gathered at the theatre on Friday morning. All of them had booked tickets and were waiting for the screening. They became furious when the theatre owners informed them that the movie could not be screened due to financial dispute, said the police.

The owners anticipated violence and informed the police. “We held and emergency talk with the people. The theatre refunded the money collected for advance booking. Normalcy was restored within minutes,” said a police officer.
