Members of Tamil Nadu stuntmen's association won't work in any other language films unless Film Employees' Federation of South India (FEFSI) helps them arrive at mutual understanding over ongoing tussle between action artistes from Tamil and Telugu film industries.

Tamil stuntmen demand equal distribution of work.

"We demand equal participation in work when we do films in other languages. If we are doing films in other languages, then we want to use half of our fighters," a member of Tamil Nadu stuntmen association told IANS.

"Most Telugu films recently have refused to work collaboratively. They demand that we use only three of our fighters... We can't work like that and, therefore, we have decided not to work in films in other languages," he added.

On the same grounds, a team of upcoming Tamil comedy "Biriyani", recently shooting in Hyderabad, was forced to return to Chennai after stunt choreographers refused to work together.

Confirming this, stunt master Kanal Kannan told IANS: "If we agree to work as per their whims and fancies, then we are in loss. Most of our stunt choreographers are paid less when they do films in Hindi and other languages".

"We have stopped doing films in other languages for the time being. We will continue not to work in other languages until this issue is taken seriously and sorted out at the earliest by FEFSI," he added.

According to reports, Tamil fighters recently stopped working for Salman Khan-starrer "Mental" for the same reason.
