The Madras High Court has ordered the State government to provide entertainment tax exemption for director Seenu Ramasamy’s Neerparavai. The movie produced by Udhayanidhi Stalin features Viishnu, Sunaina, Nandhitha Das and Samuthirakani in key roles. Music is by Rahunanthan. It speaks about the travails of fishermen in Tamilnadu coast.
Though it was certified with a U certificate, the State government’s decision of tax exemption for the movie was not announced. The production house alleged political reasons for it.
Seenu Ramasamy announced that he would stage a fast if tax exemption was not announced. However the makers filed a case in Madras High Court and orders in this regard were passed.
