The Madras High Court has provided minor relief to actor Vishal. As many might be aware, the court has ordered stay order for Vishal’s upcoming film Chakra to hit the digital platform. It was done due to a case filed by Trident Arts.
Getting further into details, Trident Arts has filed a case in the Madras High Court seeking the stay of the release of Chakra on OTT platform.
According to Trident Arts, Vishal owes them 8 Cr as compensation for the box office failure of the movie Action. The actor as ‘compensation’ promised to do another film. However, due to the COVID situation, it didn’t materialise as planned. When the promos of Chakra started to commence, the production house sensed something fishy as it looked like the same subject which was promised to them. They immediately sought after a ban for it.
The court issued a stay notice previously. During the same time, Vishal too has put forward his side of the story. He said that these are tactics of the production house to spoil the high selling price of Chakra. The court, has, therefore, decided to not extend the previous status quo order, further. A final decision will be made on October 5th.
Chakra is a cybercrime action thriller on the lines of Abhimanyudu. MS Anandan directs the movie. Regina Cassandra and Shraddha Srinath are the female leads. Yuvan Shankar Raja provides the music.
