Varisu: The Creators Of Vijay Starrer Face Legal Issues After The Animal Welfare Board Issues A Show Cause Notice

A legal notice was sent to Venkateswara Creations, the company that produced Vijay's bilingual film Vaarisu, by the Animal Welfare Board. According to the AWB's show cause letter, the makers got into trouble since they failed to obtain the required authorization for utilizing animals in the movie. According to the Performing Animals (Registration) Rules 2001, pre-shoot permission was necessary because the movie appears to have five elephants.

 
According to reports, approval must be obtained before utilizing animals for shoots or any type of show under the Performing Animals (Registration) Rules 2001. According to Section 26 of the 1960 Prevention of Cruelty to Animal Acts, breaking the rules is a crime. The creators of Vaarisu have been contacted by AWB to provide an explanation, including information about the animals' health status and the reason behind their use in the movie. The notice further stated that the makers must submit a response within seven days of receiving the letter.
 
Varisu has run into another problem as a result of its rollout in Telugu areas. It is anticipated that Varisu, which will be released in Telugu as Varusudu, will be a multilingual film. The Telugu Producers Association opposed the movie's attempt to fill theatre screens since Makar Sankranti 2023 will witness a significant fight between Tamil and Telugu films. Many of them from the Tamil film industry showed up in favour of the movie and begged the organization to provide each release with an equal number of theatre screens.
 
Moving on to the movie, Varisu is helmed by well-known Telugu director Vamsi Paidipally and has Rashmika Mandanna as the lead actress. Other popular actors in the film include Sarathkumar, Prakash Raj, Sangeetha, Yogi Babu, Prabhu, and Shaam, among others. The Ajith-starrer Thunivu is anticipated to collide with the movie.
