Cricket and Cinema are two of the biggest fields in India which have a massive fan following. The followers of both these 'C's idolise and at most times worship the actors, actresses and cricketers from these fields! Erecting giant cut-outs for their favourite stars has been a tradition that has been prevalent in Indian Cinema for almost as long as the industry itself has been. In recent times, there have been a lot of restrictions over the erection of cut-outs in public places, especially in places where the common folk's daily routines would be severely hampered. However, the practice of erecting cut-outs inside theatre premises or just outside them is still going strong and in this fashion, ardent fans of Suriya's had erected a massive 200+ feet cut-out of their matinee idol, in Tiruppur.
This cut-out, which is said to be 215 feet tall, is reportedly the tallest ever for an actor in Tamil cinema. While this news went viral and photos of the cut-out and a video of how it was assembled have been doing the rounds, there has been a major blow to Suriya's fans. We hear that the Tiruppur Suriya Fans Association, which put up the cut-out, failed to obtain all the necessary official permissions for the cut-out. In this light, a high-ranking officer from the Municipal Corporation of Tiruppur had passed an order to take down the cut-out. There are reports that following this order, the fans had no other go but to dismantle the massive cut-out. Earlier, Dhanush's fans had erected a 150 feet cut-out during the release of his Maari 2 and Thalapathy Vijay's fans had outdone them by putting up a 175-feet cut-out for their hero's Sarkar. Not to be left out, Thala Ajith's fans erected a massive 190-feet cut-out for Viswasam's release.
