UTV Motion Pictures has won the battle over Purampokku title issue. The movie directed by SP Jhananathan landed in trouble over the movie name issue when a cameraman claimed the ownership of the title. However, this battle was taken to the trader bodies and the verdict has come in the favour of UTV.
Happy man G Dhananjayan, the chief-south of Disney UTV, said that they have retained the title. He claims, “There were speculations about whether the title Purampokku belong to us or not. We wish to clarify that the title is retained by us and the same was confirmed by South Indian Film Chamber, Tamil Film Producers Council and Film & Television Producers’ Guild.”
“Hence, no more confusion and we retain the title for the film from writer-director SP Jhananathan as Purampokku- No Man’s Land starring Arya and Vijay Sethupathi,” G Dhananjayan adds.
Cinematographer Natraj Subramaniam had earlier claimed that he had already registered the title Purampokku for his future film, and he did not give permission to anyone to use the title. He had also threatened to take legal action against anyone who tried to use the title.
Talking about the other crew, he claimed, “A few more top artistes are going to join the team and shall keep you updated along with the entire technicians list soon.” Purampokku, which is in the pre-production stage, has Ekambaram’s cinematography and VT Vijayan’s editing.
