Troubles over film titles are not new in Tamil Nadu. Infact, every second film faces some similar problem. People are frankly fed up. They don't care a damn, actually. But the protesting groups continue to be it.
This time around, actor Sivaji Ganesan's Fan Club has issued legal notice to actor Dhanush and his sister-cum-producer Dr Vimala Geetha to change the name of the film Thiruvilayadal Arambam,under production with Dhanush starring in it, within 15 days or face legal action before the necessary forum.
In a notice issued to the producer on behalf of Chandrasekaran, it was stated that Thiruvilayadal is the name of film which starred thespian Sivaji Ganesan in the lead role. When people hear the word Thiruvilayadal, they would remember only Sivaji Ganesan.
Though your film is not Thiruvilayadal but Thiruvilayadal Arambam, it is no way connected with old devotional super hit movie. Since Thiruvilayadal was a devotional movie taken on the life history of Hindu Lord Shiva and any misuse of the title would hurt the feelings of the people'. Efforts to contact Dhanush camp went invain.
