Madras High Court ordered status quo on a petition by an entertainment company seeking to restrain Rajkamal Films International, Kamal Haasan and others from releasing a film “Unnaipol Oruvan” in Tamil and Telugu.
In his affidavit, Pyramid Saimira Productions International Ltd., Nandanam, represented by its director, N. Narayanan, said it had already filed a suit against the respondents for recovery of Rs.7.82 crore with interest and costs.
Rajkamal Films, the actor and others had entered into an agreement with the company in April last year for the joint venture production of “Marmayogi” on a budget of Rs.100 crore. The petitioner said the company had parted with a huge amount to the respondents, but they had not evinced any interest in the production of “Marmayogi”.
respondents had diverted the funds for the production of their picture “Unnaipol Oruvan” and were attempting to release it. Thus, the terms and conditions of the MoU had been violated, the petitioner said.
