Film distributor moves Madras HC seeking stay of Baahubali 2


A film distributor yesterday moved the Madras High Court, seeking a stay on the April 28 release of the multi-lingual film 'Baahubali 2' in Tamil Nadu, citing unpaid dues of Rs 1.18 crore.

Chennai-based ACE Media, in its civil suit against M S Sharavanan of Sri Green Productions, submitted that the latter had taken theatrical exhibition rights of the Tamil movie for the entire Tamil Nadu territory.

In January, 2016, he had approached ACE for a loan, to be paid to Prabhu Deva Studio Pvt Ltd, on the promise that he would return the amount with an additional sum of Rs 10 lakh before the release of 'Baahubali 2.

ACE Media proprietor claimed that he found Sharavanan trying to sell theatrical exhibition rights to third parties and that negotiations took place on April 9 during the film's audio release.
