With the number of Coronavirus cases going up in the state of Tamil Nadu, the state government has invoked section 144 of the CrPC which prohibits the assembly of five or more people in public places. This section shall be enforced from 6 pm onwards today as per the latest reports. Meanwhile, with all shootings being put on hold and the daily wage workers on film sets going out of work, FEFSI president RK Selvamani had appealed yesterday to the film fraternity to extend financial help for those in need. After Sivakumar, Suriya, Karthi and Sivakarthikeyan’s donations, Superstar Rajinikanth has reportedly given 25 per cent of the needed money for FEFSI members, while actor Vijay Sethupathi has given Rs 10 lakh for the needy.
