The Madras High Court has stayed the release of Nayanthara-starrer ‘Kolaiyuthir Kaalam’. The interim injunction order has been issued when a plea filed by Balaji Kumar, director of ‘Vidiyum Munn’, came up for hearing.
In his petition, Kumar said he had obtained the rights of the novel ‘Kolyaiuthir Kaalam’ from writer Sujatha’s wife for Rs 10 lakh. Hence, he appealed to the Madras High Court to stop the makers from releasing the film with the same name since it is a violation of copyright.
In the meantime, director Vignesh Shivan, who is said to be in relationship with Nayanthara, has come out with a note praising the producer of ‘Kolaiyuthir Kaalam’. Earlier, he slammed the makers of the movie, alleging that it was incomplete and wasn’t shot properly, it may be recalled.
In his latest statement, Vignesh Shivan said, “Pleased to see a producer having this much care and affinity towards his product. Mr Madhiazhagan’s sincere efforts to give the film a good release shows his conviction for good content.
Personally, we have had some bitter moments which I feel was unfortunate and unnecessary but at the end of the day, it all takes a good conversation to end things on the right note. We all work in the same industry and its always good to have the goodwill and positivity floating around always.
Solid performances from the lead Nayanthara and all the other cast. Sincere efforts from the crew helmed by Chakri to bring out a technically sleek and strong movie.”
