MADURAI: A petition challenging the release of upcoming Tamil film Anegan starring Dhanush was withdrawn as the Madras High Court bench here directed the petitioner to approach the Censor Board.

S Mariselvam, president of the Thirukurippu Thonda Nayanar Maha Sabhai, (Association for the washermen community), approached the court contending that the trailer of the movie portrayed his community women in bad light. The women of the community were described as “obnoxious” characters in the film.

The petitioner issued a legal notice to the Censor Board asking them to delete such portions. Since there was no response, he approached the court to stall the release of the film which is set to hit the screens on Friday next.

Justice B Rajendran said that the petition cannot be entertained under writ jurisdiction and instructed the petitioner to approach the Censor Board as the film was already certified and ready for release. Hence the petition was dismissed.
