The Madras High Court has ordered that no strict action should be taken in the case against actor Suriya and others in connection with the ‘Jai Bheem’ film issue.
A petition was filed by Santosh in Saidapet court demanding action against the producers Surya, Jyotika, director Gnanavel and others in the film ‘Jai Bheem’ directed by actor Surya and directed by Gnanavel, alleging that the scenes were set to hurt the sentiments of the Vanniyar community.
The Saidapet court heard the petition and ordered to register a case on the complaint. Based on that, the Velachery police have registered a case against actor Surya and others. Director Gnanavel and actor Surya filed a petition in the Madras High Court seeking to quash the case and stay the trial.
In that petition, it was stated that the controversial scene featuring the calendar in the film had been removed before filing this complaint and there was no evidence to say that the scenes were set to denigrate the Vanniya community.
When this petition came up for hearing before Justice Satishkumar, it was requested that the complainant filed an interlocutory petition objecting to the quashing of the case and that interlocutory petition should also be heard.
Accepting this, the judge adjourned the hearing on the petition filed by Surya and Gnanavel to July 21 and ordered that no strict action should be taken against Surya and others in the case until then.
