Chennai, June 8 (IANS) Sarath Kumar, president of the South Indian Artistes' Association (SIAA), has asked all non-member Tamil movie performers to either enrol before June 30 or face total non-cooperation from the film industry.

To shore up SIAA finances, its general body passed a unanimous resolution necessitating the donation of 2.5 percent of all top stars' emoluments to the organisation, Kumar said Saturday.

'Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi, a personal friend of late Sivaji Ganeshan must set apart a better, bigger site to create a memorial for the late movie icon,' the actor-turned-politician Kumar told reporters.

The decisions to install statues of late matinee idols M.G. Ramachandran and Sivaji Ganeshan in SIAA premises and creation of a bigger complex at its present site were also taken, the body's communique added.

Kumar had led the Tamil film industry's protest against Karnataka's opposition to the Hogenekkal Water Supply Project in April and demanded explanatory statements from non-participant stars, a move frowned upon by the Federation of Film Employees of South India.

Basically all South Indian artistes are members of the "trade union". They have to subscription fees and other expenses. Other artistes e.g. those from Mumbai are not liable for these expenses and charges. So basically they come down, act and make money. So SK has made it compulsory for the non-SI artistes to join the union.

Actually this is nothing new. In the UK and US, no one can become an actor until they obtain a card and belong to the actors' union.

The second matter is that the big stars are helping the association by donating a percentage of their income.

The third one is obvious.

Hope this helps. Big smile
