What is the easiest way to get big publicity? Sue cases against big
stars and their films!
Here is yet another such case. This time, it is against
superstar Rajinikanth's magnum opus Shivaji, which has
Shreya Saran in the female lead. Sudalai Kannu of Thirunelveli town
filed a case against the film yesterday and claimed that the story
of the film is written by him a few years ago.
He filed a petition in the Chennai High Court on Tuesday against
the film. In his petition he stated: "Writing stories is my hobby
and I sent one of my stories to director Shankar two years ago. I
got an acknowledgment from the director. But the director has used
the story without my knowledge. The court should order the director
and producer to give the credit of the story to me. Till then,
Shivaji should be banned from screening''
After hearing the petition, Justice Vijayendirarani has sent
notices to director Shankar and AVM Productions. They will be
coming for the hearing this afternoon.
