A defamation case was filed in a Madurai court against the actor, director and producer of the Tamil film Kaththi for a reference to the 2G spectrum case in the movie. Petitioner, advocate R. Ramasubramanian filed the case in the judicial magistrate’s court against actor Vijay, film director A. R. Murugadoss and producer of the movie Lyca Productions, contending that a dialogue in the film suggests that corruption occurred in the allocation of 2G spectrum. The petitioner quoted a dialogue in the film that “this country is of the persons having looted crores and crores of rupees by keeping just 2G waves”. He said film-makers and actors are not supposed to come to a conclusion whether corruption
occurred in allocation of 2G spectrum when the matter is being heard by a Delhi court. The movie portrayed the nation and its rulers in a bad light. Such dialogues will affect the nation’s foreign direct investment, the petitioner contended. He said the action of people involved in the film was an offence under Section 500 (defamation) of the IPC and hence action should be taken against Vijay, Murugadoss and Lyca Productions.
The court granted permission to file the petition and adjourned the matter to November 11.
