He alleged that as per rules, only movies with titles in Tamil and meant for developing Tamil culture was eligible for exemption from entertainment tax. ”..the title Lingaa is originally a Sanskrit word and thereby the movie is not eligible for getting exemption from payment of entertainment tax.”
He alleged that both Rajinikanth and the film’s producer had caused a great loss to the government exchequer.
He claimed that no action was taken on his complaint filed before the Commissioner of Police, Greater Chennai City, on March 3 seeking action against the actor and producer and hence he filed the present plea. The petition is expected to come up for hearing on Monday.
