Chennai, May 11 (UNI) Tamil Film Directors Association (TFDA) election was indefinetly put off following violence and mud-slinging between rival camps.
According to association officials, one senior director was reportedly beaten up in a fracas last night, which resulted in some ugly exchanges this morning.
Police had to step in swiftly to bring order.
Tension prevailed right from the morning at the Tamil Film Directors Association office as the polls to elect office-bearers for the association was set to begin.
While a section of the directors claim that it was postponed following brutal attacks by some anti-socials, a few alleged that it was a conspiracy hatched by some 'influential' men in the association, who feared that they would be defeated in polls.
The Tamil Film Directors Association comprises 1,400 members and the top men of the association wield considerable clout in the industry.
