At the famous Rohini Theatre in Chennai, several fans gathered to celebrate Pathu Thala. However, the theatre management was called out for not allowing a tribal family inside the hall despite having bought tickets for the show.
After receiving a massive backlash, the family was allowed inside the hall later. Reportedly, they belonged to the Narikurava tribe. Now, Rohini Theatre has issued a clarification, but they are getting slammed for their statement.
