A petition was filed by Gopi Nainar a few weeks earlier claiming that he had penned the story of AR Murugadoss directed Kaththi, which the director has copied. The complainant had claimed to be the former assistant of the director, but the Chennai City Civil Court has cleared the case in favour of AR Murugadoss.
The court passed the final verdict that there is no such evidence found against the respondent. The film has Samantha playing the female lead and Neil Nitin Mukesh in an important role with music by Anirudh. The Tamil action film ‘Kaththi’ will hit the screens this Diwali.
