A Chennai court has asked the Crime Branch Police to submit a report after probing the allegations made by a petitioner on the remake rights of Vijay’s forthcoming film ‘Kaavalkaran’, directed by popular Malayalam director Siddique.
In his petition, Johny Thomas of West Mambalam in Chennai has said that he had produced the Malayalam film ‘Bodyguard’ a couple of years ago and he was the actual owner of the film’s rights.
“But without my knowledge, director Siddique is remaking the film in Tamil with Vijay playing the lead role. Since he has no legal rights to do so, the Court should order the police to register a case on him,” Johny Thomas said.
When the case came up for hearing, the Eleventh Magistrate of Saidapet Court instructed the Crime Branch Police to conduct detail investigations on the allegations made by Johny Thomas and submit a report to the Court.
