Kollywood to give much-needed boost to Malaysian Tamil movies

Kuala Lumpur: The multi-million dollar worth South Indian film industry is looking forward to increase the exposure of Malaysian-made Tamil films to South Indian audience by lending them their technical expertise and talent.

Veteran actor “Vagai” Chandrasekar, who is also the treasurer of South Indian Film Artistes Association or Nadigar Sangam, said that the association was prepared to assist the local film industry by marketing local productions there, Star Online reported.

“We are prepared to bring Malaysian Tamil movies into our country and do what we can to assist them,” Chandrasekar said.

“There is a lot of talent here.”

He also recommended that local productions hire supporting actors and technical crew from Kollywood as the movies would then have better business in both countries.

“It will be easier for the Indian audience to accept films with familiar faces and names,” he said, adding that Kollywood was keen on casting Malaysian talents in its films.
