Bengaluru: An FIR has been registered against superstar Rajnikant’s wife, Latha Rajinikanth, for forgery and declaration of false statements. The whole matter is related with making of Kochadaiiyaan. A company, which had provided money to finance the movie had charged Latha Rajinikanth with ‘fraud’ and ‘double selling of the rights’ of Kochadaiiyaan.
The company, which was brought in to help with post production, gave Rs 10 crore to help the makers of Kochadaiiyaan complete the film and release it. Forgery case Abirchand Nahar of Ad Bureau was quoted as saying, “We loaned the amount only because Latha Rajinikanth herself signed as the guarantor for the money.” At that time, chief executive officer of Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited — Jayakumar overruled all charges against Latha Rajinikanth. Jayakumar was quoted as saying, “Ad bureau financed Rs 10 crore to M/s Mediaone Global Entertainment Limited and the company has already repaid Rs 9 crore.” “They wanted a distribution agreement as they didn’t have permission to finance and have given a clearance letter for the release of the film. They claimed an interest that ran up to Rs 5 crore for six months. Ad Bureau’s objective is to extort money,” he added.
