According to media reports, Latha Rajinikanth is one of the Directors of the Mediaone Global Entertainment that had taken Rs 14.90 crore loan from Bengaluru-based Ad-Bureau Advertising to finish post-production work of Rajanikanth-Deepika Padukone starrer film Kochadaiiyaan, directed by Rajinikanth’s younger daughter Soundarya. The amount outstanding is reportedly Rs 6.20 crore. Keeping the petition by Ad-Bureau Advertising pending for three months, the bench of Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R.Banumathi, in their order, said that Mediaone would pay the amount in three months failing which Latha Rajanikanth would bear the burden of payment.
Justice Gogoi observed: “We don’t like people playing around with court orders. We think you should face the trial. If you’re innocent, you will be acquitted. Face the trial.”
Much has been speculated about the loan issue in the last 6 months and many media reports even said that the loans were all repaid in time, the pending petition has brought few unknown facts to light about the payments.
