Thuppakki title issue case postponed again, no change in title

Thuppakki title issue case postponed (again???) to Sep 17
Trouble continues for Vijay's Thuppakki, directed by A.R. Murugadoss. The latest is that the Chennai City Civil Court has postponed the hearing to September 17 .
Earlier in a petition filed by K.C. Ravidevan of North East Film Works Film Factory, he alleged that he was the one who registered the title Kalla Thupakki with Film Chamber in 2009. But then the producers of Thuppakki used the influence of SAC to register the title.

The film is all set to hit screens for Deepavali. The technical team comprises of Kalaipuli S. Thanu (producer), Santosh Sivan (camera), Harris Jayaraj (music), Jayamohan (dialogues) and Anthony (editing).

No Title Change:

The title case of Thuppakki has been postponed again, thereby continuing to disappoint the fans of Vijay. The court has adjourned the case till September 17.

On the other end, there were reports that the makers of the film were ready to give up the title to avoid the delay of the release of the trailer. However, sources close to the production house have rubbished the rumours and said that they would not change the title at any cost.

The trailer of Thuppakki was earlier scheduled to release for Vijay's birthday (June 22), but the title issue cancelled the plans of the movie bosses and kept postponing till today. However, the issue came up to light after newcomer Ravi Devan approached the court claiming that the title of his movie Kallathuppakki and Thuppaki sound similar and the logos of the movies have striking resemblances.

According to him, he registered the title a few years ago and his movie is now on the verge of the completion. He requested the court not to allow the Thuppakki makers to use the controversial title in any form. As a result, all the promotional activities related to Vijay's movie have been kept on hold.

Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal starrer movie is directed by AR Murugadoss and it will release for Diwali.
