There are claims that those behind 'Thupaki' are so sure about releasing the movie on Deepavali day, despite a case pending in court, only because they have decided to change the movie's title.
It is said that the film might be rechristened as 'Saravedi', not just because the new title too is apt to the movie's script, but also to reflect the festival mood.
Starring Vijay in the lead role, 'Thupaki' is directed by A R Murugadoss and produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu. Kajal Agarwal is the leading lady, while music is by Harris Jayaraj.
The film hit a roadblock after the producers of 'Kalla Thupaki' filed a case, alleging that those behind 'Thupaki' had unlawfully registered the title.
