Vijay TV has
emerged victorious again! The television channel, which bagged
satellite rights of Vijay's Nanban earlier this year, has
acquired the TV rights of Ilayathalapathy's upcoming movie
Thuppakki directed by AR Murugadoss.
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.
