Issues over movie names have become new headache for filmmakers. Especially, films featuring stars have been dragged into controversies. For some, it is a means of getting free publicity, but for others, it creates unnecessarily troubles that harm their films to some extent. While industry is yet to find a concrete solution, people on social media have probably found a temporary answer for title issues.
Filmmakers Cautious To Reveal Names
Filmmakers have become cautious when it comes to revealing names. There are many examples of big banner films landing in court over title issues in the last few years. Popular among them is none other than AR Murugadoss' Thuppakki.
The Vijay starrer film went through hurdles when the makers of Kalla Thuppakki dragged the issue to the court claiming that AR Murugadoss could not use Thuppakki title as it affects Kalla Thuppakki's prospects at Box Office. Luckily, the court did not agree with it and rejected their plea. But if the same issue was raised during the release, there were strong chances of the movie's release getting postponed. This has made many top producers/directors not to disclose names of their films.
