'Theri' Screening Cancelled in Toronto-Area Cineplex Theatres After 'Noxious Substance' Attacks

The spokesman for the Canadian Tamil Congress released the following statement:

“I think it’s an isolated incident,” Poopalapillai said. “Whoever has done this, we want the police to go after these people. In India, there was some controversy about ticket prices where (Theri) was shown, but not over here.”
