By: Settu Shankar Wednesday, June 27, 2007 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.
