Madras High Court issued notices to the producers and director of 'Endhiran'

The Madras High Court on Tuesday issued notices to the producers and director of 'Endhiran' on the complaint of a writer who claimed 'Endhiran' story was his.

Justice S Rajeswaran, before whom the civil suit filed by Tamil writer and journalist Aarur Tamilnadan, came up for admission, asked Sun Pictures and Shankar to file a reply by November 18.

The notice was taken on behalf of Kalanithi Maran, managing director Sun Pictures, who had produced the film. The notice is returnable by November 18. The matter has been posted for that date.

In the application, Aarur Tamilnadan alleged the story of the Superstar Rajinikanth starrer film was heavily inspired by 'Jugiba', a short story written by him and published in a magazine in 1996.

Counsel for Sun Pictures, however, submitted that since the film has already been released and running to packed houses, the prayer in the suit has become fractious. The production house also opposed any interim order to stay the screening of 'Endhiran'.
