A case of contempt of Court has been filed by a firm against producer-director-actor Cheran for screening his JK Enun Nanbanin Vaazhkai against the stay granted by the Court for doing so.
Manohar Prasad, managing diretor of Gemini Industries Imaging, has filed a case with the High Court of Madras stating that “Cheran has produced and directed JK Enun Nanbanin Vaazhkai. He took a loan of Rs.2 crore from us to make the film and signed an agreement saying that he would be releasing the film only after paying up the loan with interest as accruing at the time of repayment.
“However, before repaying the loan amount, he announced the date of releasing the film. We filed a case seeking stay on the film’s release as the loan hadn’t been repaid. The Court granted an interim stay on 12th January to release the film without paying our dues. However, Cheran has released the film via DVD on 07th March which is clearly a case of contempt of Court.
“We seek action against Cheran for violating the orders of the Court,” the petition said. The petition came up before hearing in the Court of Justice R. Mahadevan who ordered that notices be sent to Cheran to file a reply with the Court.
