The theatre owners had decided that they would not render support to any of the Vijay’s forthcoming releases because of the losses they had incurred in screening Sura and the actor was asked to compensate for the losses.
When Vijay was informed about this, he had said that he would revert to them with a compensation package. However, with several days passing by after this announcement was made, there is no word about what the actor intends to do to the theatre owners. This has once again irked the theatre owners, who are planning to convene a meeting to decide on the future course of action. The most likely solution that they may arrive at could be a ban on Kaaval Kaadhal.
We had reported of the change of the title of Vijay-starrer Kaaval Kaadhal from earlier title Kaavalkaran, a few days ago. The reason for the name change is cited to be the objection raised by Sathya Movies, which owns the title and other rights of the 1967-released Kaavalkaran. MGR and Jayalalitha had starred in this film.
Sathya Movies had sent a letter to the Producers’ Council stating that it had not parted with the title of Kaavalkaran and hence the name should not be used for the Vijay-starrer. Following this, the title has been changed to Kaaval Kaadhal.
