Bollywood hunk and actor producer John Abraham has been facing a problem of protests from the pro Tamil outfits but is adamant on releasing his movie on the scheduled date. John Abraham on Wednesday urged ‘all of Chennai’ to support the release of his movie Madras Cafe, which has been labelled as ‘anti-Tamil’ by the Tamil activists.
“I would like to urge all of Chennai to support ‘Madras Cafe’ as a film and release it as it is a credible film made with a lot of heart and it gives audiences something novel to be entertained about,” John said in a statement.
The movie, directed by Shoojit Sircar and produced by John, is said to be on the Sri Lankan civil war that ended in 2009.
The ‘Madras Cafe’ team had to face the protests of Tamil activist groups such as Naam Tamizhar and MDMK, who claimed to ban the movie saying that is portays LTTE cadres as terrorists.
