According to an agreement, Thirrupathi Brothers had to give the copyright and distribution of “Uttama Villain” to Thangam Cinemas if the loan was not repaid before the release of the film.
Thangam Cinemas moved to court after a cheque given by the producers bounced.
When the case came for hearing, the produces promised to settle the loan on or before April 28.
Justice K. Ravichandraababu posted the case for April 28.
