Madras Cafe not to release in Chennai?

Madras Cafe starring John Abraham may not release in Tamilnadu following opposition by Naam Thamizhar.

Directed by Shoojit Sarcar, the movie’s pivot was the killing of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and the events that culminated in his assassination.

Ever since the movie went to floors, there have been allegations that the movie was against Tamils and that it portrays LTTE as ‘terrorist organisation.

After the special screening in Chennai, Seeman, said, ‘The aim of the movie is to portray Prabhakaran as a villain. We cannot accept the movie in any form. The heart of the film is anti-Tamil.
