Vadivelu has got a huge relief from the Madras High Court, which has dismissed a petition seeking a ban against Tamil flick Thenaliraman. Two Telugu organisations have filed the petition last Friday (April 11) and requested the court to ban the film alleging that the film has twisted facts about the famous Sri Krishnadevaraya.
Two Telugu groups Tamil Nadu Telugu Makkal Peravai and Tamil
Nadu Telugu Yuva Sakthi moved the court to ban the film. The groups
had alleged that Thenaliraman movie shows Sri
Krishnadevaraya in a bad light. The makers of the film have not
conducted research in a proper manner and this is evident with the
fact that the king is projected to have 36 wives and 52 children in
Vadivelu's film. And it has hurted the sentiments of a section of
Taking objections to it, AGS Entertainment defended and said
that it is a fictional story and does not have any connection to
Sri Krishnadevaraya. Indeed, the king will be referred as Maamannar
in Thenaliraman. But after hearing the stories from both
the sides, the court dismissed the petition.It has now been cleared
for the release this Friday (April 18).
Thenaliraman is a comeback movie of Vadivelu, who has been in exile following the defeat of the DMK. It is a comedy film directed by Yuvaraj Dhayalan.
