IPL matches to be moved out of Chennai; Kollywood celebrities react


Can we please close tasmac? Can we please ban party flags at protest venues? Several people were also detained after the protests took a violent turn. “This should have been done earlier. Director Ameer, who was among those detained on Tuesday, said that the move is happy news. “Now all those who protested violently against a sport and managed to shift the venue and consider that as success, better make sure that you get the cauvery management board set up too. After hot-tempered protests at Chennai by various groups seeking to ban IPL in Chennai, the BCCI on Wednesday decided to move out the upcoming IPL matches out of the city fearing the safety of players. Members of the film fraternity like directors Ameer, Bharathiraja, Seeman, Vetrimaaran and Ram even protested at the Chepauk stadium. It means that the authorities have understood the feelings of Tamil people and reacted accordingly. This news gives me happiness,” he said. The decision has elicited polarising reactions with a few hailing the move as ‘better late than never gesture’, while others questioned the relation. Mudiyuma?,” he wrote.
