Kamal to chair international meet

Kamal Haasan sets the path, once again. The ‘Universal Hero’ will chair an international ‘Media and Entertainment Business Conclave’, orgainised by the entertainment division of FICCI in Chennai.

The two-day conclave, beginning on November 18, seeks to present a comprehensive report on southern entertainment industry and expose delegates to the global developments, trends and opportunities in the entertainment industry.

“International film industry is keen on joint ventures with us and there will be a sizable presence of global players as well. The aim of the conclave is to identify and seek redressal of issues facing the entertainment and performing arts industry,” Kamal Haasan said.

“A wide range of issues will be discussed with leading actors, technicians and other media personalities. The meet will provide a forum to take up regulatory issues with the State and Central governments,” he said.

The event to be inaugurated by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi will see over 500 participants, including Information and Broadcasting Minister Ambika Soni and other Central and State Ministers.

“It is a conclave to bring different Indian States and their entertainment industries together. South Indian film industry has a dominance over others in terms of the number of films produced. But, it is not adequately represented yet. This conclave will shift the focus of the world to south Indian films,” Kamal said.

He added: “It is the first step towards networking global film industries and this will be held subsequently in other southern States.” Media advisor to FICCI P Murari and others were present.
