The title dispute of Vijay’s Thuppakki andKallathuppakki may be yet to settle the issue in court, the delay in the judgement seems to have not gone well with the Ilayathalapathy fans. Well, Ravi Devan, the director of Kallathuppakki, has alleged that he is getting threatening calls from the actor’s fans.
Ravi Devan has said that he has got over 150 calls from different numbers threatening him for creating troubles for Kallathuppakki in the last couple of days. The unknown callers are threatening to kill him and his family. As a result, he has filed a complaint on Thursday (August 30) seeking the cops for protection.
The controversy came to light in June first week after Ravi Devan approached the court claiming that the title of the Vijay’s upcoming movie sounds similar to the of his movie and the logo of Thuppakki has resemblances with the logo of Kallathuppakki. The similarities would lead to a lot of confusion to the audience and it is against the rule of the film chamber. He had registered the title in 2009 and renewed every year till now.
Hearing his petition, the court granted the interim injunction till July 17 for the makers of the film from using the title Thuppakki and its logo. Later, the makers of Vijay’s film filed a counter affidavit justifying the use of the title. However, the court is yet to deliver the judgement and the case has now been postponed till September 10.
According to him, his movie is ready for censor but the film chamber has not given him the required publicity clearance.
