Vijay and Asin spared from arrest warrant for now
April 29, 2006
Sivakasi came, produced a few fireworks for the fans, and went unnoticed but the din generated by the lawyers – offended with a few scenes in the movie that allegedly show them in poor light – refuses to die away. First a case was filed in Neyveli against the actors Vijay and Asin, the producer A M Rathnam and the comedian Bhaskar for denigrating the profession of lawyers in the movie. There was another case against the same team in Madurai and they are finding it difficult, due to their traveling schedules, to appear in the courts in response to summons issued against them.
When the case came up for hearing on Friday, the actors and others, this time too, could not make it to the Madurai court and the petitioner promptly requested the court to issue arrest warrants against them. Much to the relief of Vijay and Co, the Magistrate has refused to take the arrest route and has adjourned the case for hearing on July 7th . `On that day, defendants have to be present, or else..’ has been the warning from the Magistrate.
Meanwhile, the appeal filed by the actors in Madras High Court seeking transfer of cases to Chennai is yet to be disposed off by them. So, at present, Vijay and Asin may go to any part of the globe, singing duet songs, but on a particular day in July, they will have to mark their attendance in the courts of the temple town!
