A major crisis has hit the Tamil film industry after the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) called for an immediate strike few days back against Digital Service Providers (DSPs) like UFO and Qube. Earlier this week, a meeting had taken place between the TFPC and the Nadigar Sangam where producers had stated the salary of actors' assistants can only be provided based on what the FEFSI employees have been paid over the course of many years.

Following the meeting, actor Suriya is said to be the first person to have stepped forward to spend money from his own salary for his assistants.

Following Suriya’s decision, his brother and actor Karthi is going to do the same now. 

In addition, the TFPC President and Nadigar Sangam General Secretary Vishal too has made the same decision to pay his assistants from his own pay.

This news is said to have come as a big support and relief for producers as it is expected they will save anywhere between 10-25 lakhs.
