Members of the Tamil film fraternity assembled in Chennai on Monday to protest against Sri Lankan government for a controversial article degrading Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalitha and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The article was published on the Sri Lankan defence ministry's website.

Members of Tamil Directors Union and Producers Council protested outside the Sri Lankan consulate.

Tamil film stars such as Vijay, Suriya, Vinay Rai, A.R Murugadoss, R. Sarath Kumar, Vikraman, Keyar and Sivakumar participated in the protest.

The article also created furor in the Rajya Sabha, leading to the house being adjourned till noon.

Sri Lanka has since apologised for the article.
