The screening of Hrithik Roshan’s latest film Kites has been stopped in a few theatres in Chennai, following pressure from a local Tamil organization who are protesting the actor's decision to attend the 11th IIFA awards in Colombo, NDTV said.

Meanwhile an official at the Sri Lanka Tourist Board told Daily Mirror online that Roshan arrived in Colombo today along with his Director and Producer father Rakesh Roshan.

Sri Lanka as a venue for IIFA has angered many Tamil supporters in India, who accuse the Sri Lankan government of killing Tamils civilians at the height of the conflict between the army and LTTE last year.

The South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) will take a final decision on banning the films of Bollywood actors who are participating in the IIFA weekend on Monday.

The political storm over the choice of this year's venue has kept a number of stars away from Colombo. (Daily Mirror online)

    Ok let's impose 500% tax on imports from Tamilnadu including motor bikes.

    Friday, 04 June 2010 10:31 AM

    Its time SL teaches these tamil nadu extremism or better call them racists a lesson of a life time economically some how for their sponsorship of brutal terrorism nurtured & funded by them for almost 30 years by using a criminal called 'Prabakaran'. This anger shown by them is nothing but the vengence & hatred they have for SL crushing separatism in our small country. Why cant the great tamil nadhu extremist promote a tamil separate state in TN itself without asking innocent SL tamils to do their dirty work.

    Friday, 04 June 2010 10:56 AM

    We Sri Lankans should all boycott the film "Raavan," starring Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai, which is to be released in Colombo next week.

    You are a global actor and you belong to the entire world. Your decision is correct.

    Friday, 04 June 2010 11:15 AM

    Friday, 04 June 2010 12:00 PM
