'Inam' to be pulled out of Tamil Nadu theatres from Monday
Cinematographer-filmmaker Santosh Sivan's Tamil war-drama "Inam", which revolves around a group of orphans during Sri Lankan civil war, will be pulled out of theatres in Tamil Nadu from Monday following protest from Tamil fringe groups.
"Inam" released in cinemas worldwide Friday.
"My love for Tamils has been questioned by some groups. I distributed 'Inam' as a cinema lover and not to hurt the sentiments of my Tamil brothers and make profits. To avoid confusion during election time, we are pulling out 'Inam' from cinemas tomorrow (Monday)," N. Linguswamy, who distributed "Inam", said in a statement.
On Saturday, following the request by some Tamil fringe groups, five scenes were removed from "Inam", which narrates the survival story of a refugee during the Sri Lankan civil war.
"I'm not afraid of any opposition but I'm concerned about the feelings of Tamils. I'm ready to bear all the losses incurred by the film," he added.
Directed and produced by Santosh Sivan, "Inam" features Saritha, Karunas, Sugandha Ram and Karan in important roles.
