Udhayanithi's 'Gethu' which was released on Pongal festival was not been given tax exemption for some time. The Goverment did not avail entertainment tax for the film stating that 'Gethu' is not a Tamil word. But Udhay, who filed a case in high court regarding this issue mentioned that 'Gethu' means cleverness. The actor has successfully won the case and tweeted saying, "#redgiant wins the case against the TN govt! Chennai high court grants tax exemption for #gethu from the date of release!"
