Film Shooting Near Aliyar Reservoir near Anamalai Tiger Reserve Draws Criticism

A film is being shot on sets erected near the zero point of the Aliyar Dam. Environmental activists point out that soil has been dug up from the catchment area and that the chemicals used in the set are changing the color of the water. The polluted water endangers the fishes and the music, bright lighting and large number of people disturb the wildlife that come down at dawn and dusk to drink water. The film production unit has obtained permission from the Public Works Department officials in Chennai and local officials have little say over the matter. This has been a common problem in the area. It is to be noted that earlier film shooting used to be allowed inside the forest areas. That practice has now been stopped.
