Tamil Nadu Film Producers Council Election Results Sunday April 02,2017

The results of the Tamil Nadu Producers’ Council elections have been declared. In the three-way contest, actor Vishal’s team has won all the key posts in the association, including the president’s post.

Vishal won the president’s post by winning 144 votes more than his closest rival, producers S Radhakrishnan of Maruthi Films. Vishal has garnered a total of 478 votes while Radhakrishnan got 332 votes.

Meanwhile, Prakash Raj and Gautham Menon have been elected as vice-presidents of the council and SR Prabhu of Dream Warrior Pictures is the new treasurer. Studio Green’s KE Gnanavel Raja has been elected as one of the secretaries. However, director Mysskin from the Vishal team lost the secretary’s post to S Kathiresan from Kothanda Ramaiah’s team.

The elections were held on Sunday April 02,2017 after a long and hard-fought campaign between three groups led by Kothanda Ramaiah, S Radhakrishnan and Vishal. However, like Nadigar Sangam elections, Vishal and team managed to pull off a stunning victory turning the incumbent tide in their favour. This election for the producers association saw the highest polling in the history. Of 1212 eligible voters, 1059 cast their votes.

Vishal’s team had accused the former officer bearers of incompetence. Buoyed by the victory, the winning team promised some ‘historic’ changes in the association. “Like Gautham said, we will all work together for everyone’s welfare and the good of cinema,” said Vishal, who produces films under his home production banner, The Vishal Film Factory. Vishal is also the general secretary of Nadigar Sangam.

Vishal also said that the producers’ association under his leadership will tackle the issue of piracy head on
