The TV channel successfully won the bidding by quoting an undisclosed fancy price. There were a lot of competition for the satellite rights, as Vijay's movies often fetch good TRPs (Target Rating Point). It may be recalled that his recent movie Nanban, which was acquired by Vijay TV, got a record-breaking 11.1 TRPs.
Meanwhile, Vijay TV is planning to air a special programme on Thuppakki, which features Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal in the leads. Earlier, the channel had produced 'Friend Ah Pola Yaaru?' for Nanban.
However, Thuppakki title issue has been adjourned to August 14. The suit came up for hearing on Tuesday (07.08.2012) before the court on the petition filed by Ravi Devan, who alleged that the title and logo of the Vijay starrer movie share resemblances to his movie Kallathuppakki.
