The Madras High Court has granted an interim injunction and against the shooting of Vijay’s Azhagiya Tamizh Magan on a petition filed by Mohammed Farooq alias Raja of Grand Creations . The court also ordered issue of notice to Jeeva, story writer and producer `Swargachitra’ Appachan claiming rights over the story of the film.
Raja says that he and S.K Jeeva, who now claims to be the writer of the film had jointly written the script under the name ‘Guru-Prasad’ and wanted to produce it with Vijay. Later Jeeva narrated the story to Vijay who liked it and asked director Bharathan and producer Swargachitra Appachan to make it into a film.
However Raja found that without his knowledge, Jeeva had sold it to Appachan. He approached the Tamil Film Producers Council where the producer and writer promised him Rs 5 lakhs as compensation. They paid Rs 1 lakh and refused to pay the balance, and were trying to complete the shoot and release it by August 15.
So Raja approached the Madras High court, who has granted a stay on the shoot, production and distribution of the film for the next four weeks
Entry filed under: ATM.
