CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has restrained Senthil Kumar, proprietor of G&7G Films from releasing the Tamil feature film ‘Kadavul Irukkan Kumaru’, starring GV Prakash Kumar, scheduled for release on November 10.
Justice MM Sundresh on Tuesday granted the stay for two weeks while passing interim orders on an application arising out of a civil suit from one R Singaravelan, praying for a direction to restrain Senthil Kumar, producer, his men, agents and representatives from distributing the film in any television network, DTH, DSS or in any manner communicating to the public.
According to plaintiff, Senthil Kumar owed Rs. 61.25 lakhs to him in the matter relating to the release and screening of another film ‘Lingaa’, starring Rajinikanth and directed by KS Ravikumar in December 2014. Senthil Kumar assured the plaintiff that the sum will be paid as soon as possible. But did not do so.
Petitioner came to know that Senthil Kumar is about to release his film ‘Kadavul Irukkan Kumaru’, directed by M Rajesh, on November 10.
The producer had executed a letter on June 18 last saying he will not release the film without clearing the dues to the plaintiff.
However, contrary to the promise, the producer, with a view to defrauding the plaintiff, fixed the date of release of the film as November 10 and caused wide publicity. Hence, the present suit, he said.
