Vikram caught in a fix | Times Of India

Irked that the actor’s name has been dragged into the title issue, Karikalan’s producers plan to file a defamation suit

A civil court in the city had ordered an interim stay on Karikalan’s filming after K S Rajasekaran, aka, Nagaraj sent a notice to the team alleging that the film’s story and title were his. The court had also issued summons to its makers and hero Vikram. But, now, the producers of the film are planning to file a defamation suit against Rajasekaran for involving Vikram’s name in this issue.

When CT got in touch with S S Vasan, one of the film’s producers, he said that it is grossly unfair to drag Vikram’s name in this issue. “It is understandable when the producer and the director are issued summons in such a case. But, involving an actor in such a case is unfair. He is not part of both the script and title registration process,” he says. He reveals that Vikram had spoken to him about the issue, and feels that this has caused mental agony for his hero. “It brings down his reputation and we are consulting our lawyers about filing a defamation suit,” he claims.

Stating that they have adequate proof to argue their case, he says, “We have the documents declaring approval of the title from the producers’ council, the producers’ guild and the film chamber. They have a monthlong verification process during which they crosscheck whether the title applied for has already been registered or if there is any litigation over it.” The producer says the next schedule of shooting will probably begin by next month once the legal issues and the FEFSI wage issues are sorted out
