President Opens Tele-Cinema Village

President Mahinda Rajapaksa opened Sri Lanka’s first ever fully-equipped television and film production studio yesterday at Ranmihitenna in Tissamaharama. The film studio was constructed in three stages and is estimated to have cost two billion rupees, with the first stage of production costing 600 million rupees. Consisting of administrative buildings, studios, libraries, showrooms and 31 sets, the studio, which covers 235 acres of land, provides television and cinema artists across Sri Lanka with the ability to produce films under one roof for a very low cost.

First Lady Shiranthi Rajapaksa and Ministers Chamal Rajapaksa, Lakshman Yapa Abeywardana were also present at this landmark event.

    This will accommodate artists like Jackson Anthony, Anarkali etc. All artists of government supporters only. Waste of money.

    Buddhist monk threatens Tamil farmers in Trincomalee
    [TamilNet, Thursday, 01 April 2010, 19:19 GMT]

    About one hundred and forty Tamil farmers cultivating paddy in 13th unit of Maha Vi’laangku’lam, now named Mahadiulwewa after the State aided colonization since the country gained independence, were threatened by a Buddhist Monk in the area to leave their paddy lands and go elsewhere. The Buddhist Monk claims that the said paddy lands are parts of an archaeological site where an ancient Buddhist Vihare was located.

    The affected Tamil farmers who are residents of Chaanthipuram, a Tamil settlement in Nochchikku’lam close to Maha Vi’laangku’lam, have lodged a complaint against the Buddhist monk with the Divisional Secretary of Morawewa; its earlier Tamil name was Muthalikku’lam.

    Maha Vi’laangku’lam and Muthalikku’lam were traditional Tamil villages in the north of Trincomalee district along Trincomalee-Anuradhapura highway before the country gained independence from Britain.

    White skin Bergers get jobs as beautiful actors and actresses in the cinema and TV industry.

    Perhaps, Berger Fonseka may get released before his natural or tortcherd death.
