Why is Simbu’s film producer Suresh Kamatchi being hailed a hero?

Producer Suresh Kamatchi, who is producing actor Simbu’s upcoming film Maanadu that is being directed by Venkat Prabhu, is being hailed a hero by those on social media for his decision to have his entire team insured.

The recent mishap at EVP studios which left three men dead and several others injured, seems to have been the motivating factor. The fact that poor techinicians working on the film set of Indian 2 did not have insurance cover seems to worked on the conscience of Suresh Kamatchi, who has now got all those working on his film insured.

Well known producer Rajan, while lauding Suresh Kamatchi for having made such a move said, “Ideally, all producers must insure their units before they go to work. This will help them, should misfortune strike. Producer of Maanaadu, Suresh Kamatchi, has insured his film that has a budget of Rs 30 crore for a sum of Rs Six lakh and eight thousand. Along with GST, he has paid a sum of Rs Seven Lakh and Seventy five thousand. Insuring will protect both the producer and the workers on the set.”

Not just producer Rajan. Several people on social media including Twitter praised the move of the producer to get his entire unit insured.

One Twitter user said, “God bless team #Maanaadu Folded hands Hats off @sureshkamatchi sir & team for making the right move at the right time after the tragic #Indian2 incident!!! Everything about #SilambarasanTR & his film is very positive”

Another posted, “Thanks to dear @sureshkamatchi sir for making the much needed move for Tamil Cinema! The crew members of #Maanaadu are provided with their insurance. #Positivity.”

The praises seems to have further strengthened the team of Maanaadu which is all set to begin its next schedule in Hyderabad.
