Protest against title ‘Saraswathi Sabatham’ to upcoming flick

‘Saraswathi Sabatham’, starring Sivaji Ganesan was released in 1966. Fans of Sivaji Ganesan have raised voice in protest against giving the same title to upcoming flick starring Jai. 

Regarding the issue, KVP Bhoominathan, head of Sivaji Ganesan Fan Club, has released statement: -

‘Saraswathi Sabatham’ turned out a wonderful classic starring Sivaji Ganesan.  Giving the title to another movie is like disrespecting those artistes who did the movie.  Already, we protested against Vivek doing role of Appar that Sivaji Ganesan did.  The title ‘Saraswathi Sabatham’ should not be given to the upcoming flick.  If they do not heed our demand and give the title, we would lay siege on actor Jai’s house and actor Sathyan’s house. 

Chandrasekaran, head of Sivaji Social Welfare Association, released statement: -

‘Titles of mythical and historical movies done by Sivaji Ganesan should not be given for upcoming flicks.  We do not protest against giving title Uthama Puthiran, Gouravam, Iruvar Ullam.  We protested against giving title ‘Thiruvilaiyaadal’ to recent movie.  They changed the title to ‘Thiruvilaiyaadal Aarambam’. 

Now, title ‘Saraswathi Sabatham’ has been given to upcoming flick.  In temple festivals, the dialogues from the Sivaji Starrer are still being played.  Giving the title to romance and comedy movies disrespects Hindu deities and Sivaji Ganesan.  So, we would go for court action such that title is changed.’
