Court restricts Thupakki

The Chennai City Civil Court has stopped producers of Vijay’s forthcoming Thupakki from using the title till July 16.

The order was issued based on a petition filed by Yogidas, the director of a film titled Kalla Thupakki. Yogidas alleged that he registered the title Kalla Thupakki in 2009 itself.

‘But using the influence of Vijay’s father S A Chandrasekar, who is the president of Tamil Film Producers Council, the makers of Thupakki had registered the title,’ he said.

The director described the act of Thupakki producers as against to the rules and regulations of the industry.
