'Chinnathirai Natchathira Kalai Vizha' was a show held in Malaysia on 28th September, which had Vijay Sethupathi as the special guest, alongside many famous serial artistes.

Despite being all entertaining for the viewers, the artistes who took part in the show didn't have a great time visiting Malaysia.

According to Cinema Vikatan, the artists complained that they had a terrible time in Malaysia as the organisers didn't make proper arrangements for the accommodation and meals during their stay.

They had to wait at the airport for hours as no one came to pick them up. When contacted, they were asked to find their way to the hotel with their own expenses - which is unfair as most of them agreed to attend the show for free, and some didn't even have Malaysian currency to do so.

The issues started in the Chennai Airport itself, and actress Ambika decided not to fly to Malaysia. Meanwhile, actress Kushboo who attended the press meet in Malaysia previously, failed to attend the show.

Comedian Chinni Jeyanth was not happy that he didn't get a business class ticket for traveling as he was attending the show without receiving any payment.

The artistes who couldn't afford to take a taxi to the hotel just waited at the airport for hours and later they were made to wait at the hotel for another five hours.

The artistes further complained that some of the organisers came over with their families as though they were on a vacation, while the artistes ended up struggling for the basic needs.

Surprisingly, the Chinnathirai Nadigar Sanggam's secretary itself didn't attend the show. And while the organisers were waiting to welcome popular actor Vijay Sethupathi at the airport, the Sanggam's president came and fetched the actor without anyone's knowledge.

The show was held in Malaysia after almost 15 years and the committee's president assured that the fund collected from the show will be used for the benefit of the committee and artistes. Thus, many agreed to attend without any payment. Now the artistes reveals to Cinema Vikatan that the entire show and the arrangement were nothing but a disaster!
