But now the Thirukumaran directorial has courted controversy. A complaint has been registered in the Chennai Commissioner office for portraying the sport of boxing in poor light.
The complainant Kirshnamurthy claims to be a Chennai based professional Boxer who has won many state level and national level boxing tournaments conducted by the Tamilnadu Boxing Association. He is also running a coaching center for boxing.
Krishnamoorthy who has alleged that ‘Maan Karate’ includes many scenes that insults boxing and boxers, has mentioned that before making a film based on boxing, the makers could have approached the boxing association to obtain guidelines to handle the sport in a decent manner.
Krishnamoorthy has sought legal action on director Thirukumaran, A.R.Murugadoss who wrote the story of the film and Sivakarthikeyan the lead actor. He has also sought a ban on the film if the scenes denigrating the sport could not be removed.
