Looks like the controversies shrouding Dasavatharam’s
script is far from over. Earlier, Chennai
high court turned down the petition filed
by assistant director Senthil Kumar alleging
that the story of the movie belongs to him.
Following which, Senthil Kumar filed another
petition in the court stating that he has
solid grounds for his claim that the movie
is based on his story.
He further requested the court for a preview of the movie
and also sought ban for the movie from being released.
Chennai high court admitted the petition and after hearing,
a bench of judges including A.B. Shah and Jyothimani ordered
the producers of Dasavatharam and the claimant Senthil
Kumar for the English translation of their respective
versions of the script.
Dasavatharam’s fate will be known when the judges
review both the parties’ scripts. This is considered
to be a major setback for Dasavatharam that is being shot
in jet pace for a Diwali release later this year.
