The much-awaited movie for Vijay's fans, Kaavalan, is caught in a fresh controversy. The movie is produced by Ramesh Babu, who had earlier sold the overseas distribution rights to Tantra, a company specializing in this. With the movie's release nearing, director Sakthi Chidambaram has bought the entire rights of the movie from the original production house. With the new agreement in place, Sakthi Chidambaram claims that the overseas distribution rights sold to Tantra is not valid.
Upset with this development, Tantra has knocked the doors of the Court and has filed a case regarding this. A judgment was announced today which has stayed the release of Kaavalan for the next six weeks within which time, the producers and distributors may agree to a solution. Meanwhile, the music release date for Kaavalan is under consideration.
