The censoring of director Rajiv Nath’s   new movie ‘David and Goliath’ has been stayed by the Thiruvanathapuram District Court on the basis of a petition filed by the producers of the movie. Producers Sudip Karatt and Arun, in their  petition contended that the director is promoting ‘David and Goliath’ as a movie produced by him under the banner of Chaaya Films.

“Without our consent, he has registered the movie with the Kerala Film Chamber of Commerce and Producers Association under his own banner. We have already inked an agreement  whereby, Rajiv agreed to complete the movie at a cost of `2 crore under the banner of SalRoza Motion Pictures and Line of Colours.

The agreement clearly specifies that all the rights of the movie especially the censor certificate should bear the name of the producers. But contrary to the agreement, he has used another banner and is promoting the movie as his home production,” Sudip alleged. Based on the petition, the Thiruvananthapuram District Court has issued a stay restraining Rajiv and his production house Chaaya Films from censoring ‘David and Goliath’. The movie,     scripted by Anup Menon features Jayasurya, Anup Menon, and Nazriya Nazim.
