Chennai: Critically acclaimed Sri Lankan film `With You, Without You` by filmmaker Prasanna Vithanage was pulled out from screens here Saturday following protests and threats from Tamil fringe groups.
The film released in select cities in the country via PVR Director`s Rare Friday.
"We will have to discontinue #WithYouWithoutYou with immediate effect in Chennai due to protests/threats from local Tamil associations. Sorry (sic)," posted Shiladitya Bora, who manages PVR Director`s Rare, on his Twitter page Saturday.
"With You, Without You", about two characters who accidentally collide in the post-war Sri Lanka, features Shyam Fernando and National Award winning Indian actress Anjali Patil in the lead roles.
The story of `With You, Without You` is based on the short story `The Meek One` by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
