Release Problems for Baahubali 2 in TN
There is already a huge confusion over whether Baahubali 2 will release in Karnataka or not amidst the controversy involving Satyaraj. Now, the epic film is facing release hurdles in Tamil Nadu too.
The release of Baahubali 2 in Tamil Nadu is currently hanging in the balance after the Madras high court issued a notice to its distributors for Tamil Nadu, responding to a civil suit. The Court refused to stay the scheduled release of the film but asked the theatrical rights owner, M S Sharavanan of Sri Green Productions to revert by April 18.
Chennai-based Ace Media complained that Sri Green Productions had taken a loan from it in January 2017 on the promise that the total amount would be returned along with Rs 10 lakhs interest before the release of Baahubali 2. The petitioner alleged that his debtor is going ahead with the release without clearing his debt as promised. Hence the petitioner sought a stay on the release of Baahubali 2 in Tamil Nadu until his due is settled.
The High Court has asked the distributor to respond by April 18. Based on his reply, Baahubali 2’s release issue will be resolved.
