Mr Rajashekaran said in his petition that he intended to make a film on Chola emperor Karikalan and that he had narrated the story to Rajinikanth Fans Association leader Sathyanarayana.
Mr Rajashekaran also said that another dispute over the film's title was pending in the city civil court. Therefore, the producers are using the name illegally, reports PTI. Mr Rajashekaran sought an interim injunction restraining the makers to shoot the film.
