A special bench of judges comprising the Chief Justice A.B.Shah and Jyothimani ordered actor Kamal Hassan and producer Oscar Ravichandiran to submit the affidavit in the court regarding the copyright dispute of Dasavatharam story.
Senthil Kumar, an assistant director has filed a case on Kamal and Oscar Ravichandiran and alleged that both are using his story illegally for making Dasavatharam. Earlier the single judge bench had dismissed the plea, and later the same has been taken up for a review by the Chief Justice A.B.Shah.
Last month, the CJ ordered the actor to submit the extract of the story and file an affidavit to claim the copyright from the court. But the actor and producer had failed to submit the required documents within the stipulated time.
At this juncture, the case came up for hearing yesterday before the Bench. Sanjay Ramasamy, the advocate of the actor, argued that it was not advisable to submit the extract of the story to the petitioner. After hearing the argument of both the counsels, the judges ordered the actor to submit the affidavit and the script of the film's story to the court immediately.
The judges said that court will decide whether to give the copy of the story to the petitioner or not on August 7th.
