Speaking to reporters here on April 6, Thursday, Yogish Shetty Jeppu, Founder President of the Vedike  said that it has come the notice of the Vedike that the theatre and multiplex owners were showing a step-motherly attitude towards screening of Tulu movies by  charging  higher rents and by giving priority to   films of other languages. He said the Vedike had even staged a protest putting forth this demand, in front of Platinum theatre on March 14.

Continuing Yogish urged the government to encourage Tulu film industry by setting up mini theatres in district and taluk head quarters and also to constitute a Tulu Film Chamber.

He also threatened that  the day may not be far off when people take to the streets if the demands are not fulfilled.

Office bearers of the Vedike were present  at the press meet.
