Chennai: The Madras High Court has ordered Aishwarya Rajinikanth to be exempted from appearing in the Saidapet court tomorrow (July 15) for the hearing of the case related to the smoking scene in actor Dhanush’s film “Velaililla Pattadiari”.
In actor Dhanush’s movie Ajvamula Pattadhaari, the scenes are set in violation of the ban and regulation of advertising of cigarettes and tobacco products. In this film, when there are scenes like actor Dhanush smoking, the warning text that should be displayed on the screen is not properly displayed. Therefore, a complaint was filed with the Tamil Nadu government in July 2014 on behalf of the People’s Organization for Tobacco Control in Tamil Nadu to take action against the production company and actor Dhanush.
The Deputy Director of Public Health, who investigated the matter, filed a complaint against Aishwarya Rajinikanth and actor Dhanush in the Saidapet court. The Saidapet Court has ordered both of them to appear tomorrow.
In this case, Aishwarya Rajinikanth has filed a case in the Madras High Court seeking to cancel the case being held in the Saidapet court, to prohibit the trial and to exempt her from appearing in the trial.
The case came up for hearing today before Judge N. Satishkumar. Senior Advocate PS Raman and Advocate Vijayan Subramanian appeared for Aishwarya Rajinikanth. The judge who heard the case, exempted Aishwarya Rajinikanth from appearing in the Saidapet court tomorrow and adjourned the case to August 10 for final hearing.
Meanwhile, actor Dhanush is also going to file a case seeking cancellation of the case, and as he has gone abroad for “Greyman” film work, he is going to file a petition after returning to Chennai, and it has been requested that the petition should also be heard.
