The issue with regard to title ‘Thuppaakki’ has moved to next level. Although whole of Tamil Nadu is conversant with foreword for this issue, it is befitting to give a small flashback.
Individual named Ravi Devan has been making movie titled ‘KaLLa Thuppaakki’ from 2009. The movie directed by Murugadoss, for which Dhanu has taken up production has been titled ‘Thuppaakki’. As Ravi Devan foresaw confusion with regard to titles, he filed complaint with Producer Council. There was no response. Following that, Ravi Devan went for court action and received interim stay for ban upon title ‘Thuppaakki’. The case is on hold.
In a development, Ravi Devan has filed a petition afresh with the police commissioner. He has mentioned that both SA Chandrasekaran and Dhanu are forwarding threats through hired underhand and through phone. Also, Ravi Devan has requested in the petition that proper security arrangements be made for him and his family.
