Osthi is still in problems. The release may be delayed. The Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association (TNTOA) now says that their ban on the film that have sold their rights to Sun TV stands and allege that their name has been misused in a press release stating that all decks are cleared for its release.
Paneerselvam, general secretary, TNTOA, he clarified, 'People have sent out a false statement to the media regarding our stand on screening of the film. I would like to reiterate that our noncooperation with the channel and films that have sold their satellite rights to them will continue until the channel settles their dues.'
The Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association has decided to not screen movies for a day to express solidarity with the Tamilnadu government on the Mullaperiyar Dam issue.
Paneerselvam says, 'We will be meeting on Monday to decide the date. It will most probably be on December 16, though it has not been confirmed yet.'
