The title controversy of upcoming movie Thuppakki has left the film unit in troubled waters, resulting in the cancellation of the trailer launch function, which was supposed to be held in the first week of July. Like all Vijay fans, director AR Murugadoss is also waiting to settle the issue so that they can release the teasers of the movie.
The fans of Vijay, who were eagerly waiting for the release of Thuppakki teaser, are disappointed with the development. They are not only expressing their unhappiness on social networking sites, but also pressing the director on Twitter to resolve the issue at the earliest. Responding to their queries, AR Murugadoss replied, "Waiting for the title issue to get resolved legally !..then teaser will b out soon..and as usual VJ is awesome (sic)."
Thuppakki trailer launch was originally planned to release for Vijay's birthday (June 22), but due to some reasons it was postponed, but AR Murugadoss had promised that it would be released in the first week of July. However, after Ravi Devan, a former associate of Kamal Hassan, brought the interim injunction order from the court against the makers of Thuppakki from using the title and its logo, the trailer launch plans went for a toss.
He had claimed that the title of the Vijay's movie sounds similar to his film Kalla Thuppakki. Now, the hearing is scheduled for July 16 and the trailer launch event has to be postponed if both the parties could not find an amicable solution outside the court.
