Madras Cafe not releasing in Tamil Nadu

John Abraham starrer spy thriller flick, Madras Cafe, slated for a nationwide release today, has run into a roadblock. Due to protests from various students and political parties in Tamil Nadu over alleged depiction of LTTE in negative light, Madras Café would not hit the screens in Tamil Nadu today, a body of exhibitors said.

 The decision has apparently been taken in view of controversial stand taken by several pro-Tamil groups and political parties, including BJP, against the film.Madras Cafe is the second film in recent days to miss its release date in the state after Vijay starrer Thalaiva, whose screening was delayed following threats by some groups and Kamal Haasan's Vishwaroopam too met a similar fate after Muslim organisations objected to it.

Undeterred, Abraham has refused to delete any scene from his film, wondering why anyone has a problem when the Censor Board has approved it. In a statement made yesterday, he said, "I would like to urge all of Chennai to support Madras Cafe as a film and allow it to release (as per schedule). It is a credible film made with a lot of heart and gives audiences something novel to be entertained about, vouching and encouraging cinema."
