Dhanush's Venghai can now be released without any hurdle, as the Madras High Court has lifted the interim ban on the film. Last Friday, the movie was stayed from its release after Eka Chakra Media (P) Limited moved the court claiming that the title 'Venghai' was registered by them and the makers of Dhanush's film could not use the same for the upcoming film.
In his petition, D Kalaiselvam of Eka Chakra Media Private Limited, said that the title was approved by the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce on August 9, 2010 but he received a letter from the board on September 28 that another production house, which rechristened its movie Aruva to Venghai, was using the title. By then, he had started his film so, he demanded Vijaya Productions, which is producing Dhanush's film, to pay the damage amount as well as restraining the defendants from using the title in any form.
The court said, "Therefore, it appears that the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce and Tamil Producers Council appear to have acted contrary to the registration granted in favour of the plaintiff," Hence, it orders an interim stay for a period of one week for Dhanush's next film. However, the Madras High Court has lifted the ban and has given no objection certificate yesterday, as Eka Chakra Media Private Limited and Vijaya Productions have decided to settle the issue outside court.
Hari's Venghai, which has received U/A certificate from the Censor Board, features Dhanush,Tamanna Bhatia and Rajkiran in the leads.
