In a major relief to superstar Rajinikanth, the Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to stall the release of his highly-anticipated movie Kaala which will hit theatres on Thursday.
A petitioner named KS Rajashekaran had approached the apex court, seeking an injunction against the release of Rajinikanth-starrer Kaala.
However, a vacation bench comprising Justices AK Goel and Ashok Bhushan rejected the Rajashekaran plea, seeking an injunction against the release of the movie.
“You want an injunction against the release of the movie. Everybody is waiting for the film to be released,” the bench told the lawyer appearing for the petitioner.
The petitioner has approached the apex court against the May 16 order of the Madras High Court which has posted his plea against the release of the movie for hearing on June 16.
Petitioner Rajashekaran claimed that the producers of the Kaala used his copyright-protected work in the movie without taking his prior permission.
