Has Nayanthara's Movie Release Been Banned By India?

  • 12 Jun 2019

Lady Superstar Nayanthara's film Kolayuthir Kaalam's release has been 'temporarily' banned by the Madras High Court.

Directed by Chakri Toletti, the murder thriller was scheduled for theatrical release on June 14 but has now been hit by an interim court injunction following a claim from director Balaji Mohan saying he already acquired the rights to the title 'Kolayuthir Kaalam', inspired by a novel by late author Sujatha. He paid a sum of Rs 10 lakh (RM 60,000) to the author's wife.

To clarify the issue, the film's production house, Etcetera Entertainment, released an official document:

This is to certify that M/s. Etcetera Entertainment (Membership. No. 3874) having their office at No: 28, 4th Street, Jai Nagar, Valasaravakkam, Chennai-87, is one of the producers of our council as shown in our records. Mr. V Mathiyalagan and Mrs. Ramya are the partners of the above-said firm in our council. They have registered a Tamil film title 'Kolayuthirkaalam' in our council.

Kolayuthir Kaalam has been delayed for over 3 years now. The first look of the film was released in 2016, but there was no update after that. Out of the blue, an announcement was made that the film will be released in January 2019. However, the film was postponed again.

Let's hope the court will lift the injunction and allow the film to be released.
