Prashanth Vs Suriya: Thaana Serndha Koottam in legal soup

Staar Movies owned by Shanthi Thiyagarajan (actor Prashanth’s mother) has moved the Madras High Court to restrain makers of Tamil film Thaanaa Serndha Kootam (Gang in Telugu) directed by Vignesh Sivn from releasing the movie. The petitioners submitted that Hindi film Special 26 was released in 2013. In August 2014, they obtained the rights to remake it in all south Indian languages. In September 2016, Staar Movies assigned the right to remake the film in Tamil to RPP Film factory for Rs 1.5 crore. The petitioner said they subsequently came to know that Studio Green was making the Tamil version without their consent. A hearing today on the same will decide the fate of this Suriya starrer.
