Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies has filed a petition in the Madras High Court, seeking a direction to the Tamil Nadu government to provide tax exemption to the producer's maiden heroic venture 'Oru Kal Oru Kannadi'.
According to the petition, the film has been named in Tamil and there are no scenes in the movie which would bring disrepute to the culture and tradition of the land. Hence it should be given tax exemption as per rules.
Stating that tax exemption was not granted to 'Oru Kal Oru Kannadi' due to political reasons, since Udhayanidhi is the son of former Deputy Chief Minister and DMK treasurer M K Stalin, the petition requested the court to cancel the government order in this regard.
Hearing the petition, Justice Janaradhana Raja issued a notice to the government, seeking a reply on April 24. Starring Santhanam and Hansika Motwani in key roles, 'Oru Kal Oru Kannadi' is directed by Rajesh M and is seeing a good run in the theatres.
