Kaala Karikalan Team Seeks More Time To Reply In Plagiarism Case
K Rajashekaran, proprietor of GSR Vinmeen Creations, filed a petition before a court based in Chennai, alleging that the title and story of superstar Rajinikanth’s upcoming film Kaala Karikala belonged to him. The first schedule of the Pa. Ranjith directorial was wrapped up in Mumbai recently. The petitioner wanted to stop the production of the movie till his petition is cleared.
According to recent reports, Rajinikanth, Pa. Ranjith and producer Dhanush of Wunderbar Films Private Limited have sought more time to respond to the petition filed against the movie. Counsels appeared on behalf of Rajinikanth, Pa. Ranjith and others but none appeared on behalf of the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC). The court had directed the actor and others to file their replies by June 15 when the matter came up for the hearing last week.
The matter has now been adjourned to June 23 for filing responses. K. Rajashekaran submitted in the petition that the title Karikalan was already registered by him with the SIFCC. The petitioner claimed that he had narrated the story to Rajinikanth Fans Association leader Sathyanarayana. He also cited that the chamber was misusing the rules of registration, renewal and cancellation of the titles to favour some influential persons and disfavouring indigent persons.
