Popular South Indian movie director AR Murugadoss, who recently helmed Rajinikanth starer Darbar movie has reportedly filed a petition with the Madras High Court seeking police protection. This is not the first time he did this. He earlier too sought the permission for the same when his films ran into losses.
As per the reports, the hearing of the case got scheduled on Thursday by Justice Rajamanickam. The director is claiming that about 30 to 40 distributors have been harassing him seeking compensation for the losses incurred from distributing Darbar movie. He also submitted a petition to the Chennai Police Commissioner asking for police protection. Because of the slow response from the police, he escalated his petition to the court. He filed a complaint that over 25 strangers entered his office premises on February 3 and “created a fear psychosis on the staff by using filthy language".
As of now, there is no clarity on the decision from the court and let us hope that everything goes well.
He has also cleared the point that he is just the director of the film and he is not at all aware of the theatrical, distribution or satellite rights of the film.
