Puriyatha Puthir stariung Vijay Sethupthi and Gayathrie is slated to be released today September 1st, 2017 worldwide. The release of the film has already been long delayed for numerous reason and the film is finally hitting the screens after much speculation. However, there seems to be another setback for the makers of the film. A court in Chennai has halted the release of the Puriyatha Puthir over wage issue with FEFSI. The city civil court passed the interim order on a petition filed by Film Employees Federation of South India.
The court order read – “As per the available documents prima facie of the case is made out. And, the balance of convenience is in favour of the petitioners. The submission of the counsel the JSK Film Corporation, by its proprietor J. Satishkumar, was not paid to the workers belonged to the Federation to the tune of Rs 22,13,051. This is a fit case to grant ad interim injunction because the workers have worked for this film. Hence ad interim injunction granted till September 14, 2017.”
This court order means that the producers, JSK Film Corporation, will have to clear the dues owed to the workers of the union before the release of the film, which is today, in order to proceed with the release. The union and the producers of Puriyatha Puthir are yet to come to an agreement and negotiations are yet to start between the two. The makers would like to resolve this as soon as possible make the release process a smooth one.
