Nadigar Thilagam’s Deiva Magan is one of the milestones in the glorious history of Tamil Cinema. Sivaji Ganesan played 3 different roles in this and the same was sent to Oscar Awards under Indian language films category in the 60’s.
Though the film didn’t clinch any award at that time, the juries, who watched the movie, were surprised over the breath taking performance of the legendary actor.
Now a new film production company is trying to title their film with this name Deiva Magan. But the Producers Council opposed the same with showing their new rules that no one could use the titles of old films without the prior approval of the original owners of the film.
But the debutant producer Balaji failed to produce the approval letter till last minute. So the council has decided not to permit the producer to conduct the pooja of the film with the title Deiva Magan.
Rama Narayanan, the president of the council said, “All the producers and directors must think twice before using the old titles for their films. Many have using those titles without prior approval. It is very wrong.”
