A city civil court has stayed the release of 'Vanayudham', an upcoming Tamil film that is made based on the story of forest brigand Veerappan.

  Ordering on the petition filed by Nakkeeran editor Gopal, Justice Ganesamoorthy stayed the release of the film till April 17 and ordered that the film should be shown to Gopal and only after he is convinced that his character was not badly portrayed the film could be released after April 17th!
 Editor Gopal had filed a petition in the court stating that through the trailer of the film he came to know that the film has some scenes telling the story of the veteran Kannada actor Rajkumar kidnap episode and he was quite convinced that there would be a character depicting him as a mediator in the kidnap drama.
