Acclaimed filmmaker SS Rajamouli‘s upcoming epic drama Baahubali-The Conclusion, which is easily India’s most awaited film lately, seems to have found itself in some legal trouble after allegations against the distributors by a financier.
The Madras High Court has sought the stand of the distributor on a financier’s plea that it sold its film distribution right to another firm without clearing his Rs 1.48 crore dues. Justice K Kalyanasundaram sought K Productions’ stand on plea by financier S Karthikeyan who alleged that he funded his friend N Rajarajan and K Productions’ proprietor to buy the film’s distribution right but he sold his rights to distribute the film in Tamil Nadu to another firm Sri Green Productions. On submissions by Karthikeyan’s counsel, the bench issued notices, also to Sri Green Productions, authorizing him to serve the same to the two firms. The notices are returnable by April 25.
Baahubali-The Conclusion stars Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia, Anushka Shetty, Sathyaraj and others. The film is slated to release on April 28.
