The South Indian Actors Association and Tamil Film Producers Association recently discussed the issue of salary of supporting actors. The problems of both the unions were also discussed in the meeting.

It has been said for a long time that the supporting actors of the industry are not getting their salaries properly and are being paid less.

The South Indian Actors Association is functioning with around 3300 members. Most of them are supporting actors. Similarly, hundreds of supporting actors are members of the Ventirai Actors Sangam under the Pepsi organization. Support actors in these two unions are paid different salaries.

Particularly under the Pepsi organization supporting actors are paid Rs 775 per day. But in South Indian Actors Association, supporting actors are paid only Rs 525 per day. Talks took place between the South Indian Actors Guild and Tamil filmmakers to regulate the payment of two separate salaries to supporting actors.

It has been decided to pay a salary of Rs 775 to the members of the South Indian Actors Association to make them at par with the members of the Pepsi organization. Apart from this, complaints of Producers Association and South Indian Actors Association are also discussed. The decision has been taken to specifically act on complaints of actors who have not given call sheets after receiving advance amount from producers and producers who have not paid salaries to actors after completion of shooting.

Poochi Murugan, Vice President of South Indian Actors Association and Kathiresan, Vice President of Producers Association Thenandal Murali were also present in the meeting.
