The Vijay starrer Thuppaki has been caught up in a legal tangle with the makers of Kalla Thuppaki objecting to the title.
Thuppaki’s producer Kalaipuli S Dhanu, in his fresh petition, has contended that the meanings of both the titles differ and that there is no rule that a part of the title cannot be used for another film. He has also given some examples like Siruthai and Siruthai Puli and Ee and Naan Ee.
The magistrate, on hearing this issue, adjourned the case to July 25th and ordered the defendants to come up with a counter. Until then, the interim stay on the title will continue, it was held. Therefore, all matters regarding Thuppaki’s title, audio launch and film release will be decided only after this issue is resolved.
