Title trouble: 'Samar' director explains

Director Thiru is optimistic that the hurdle before his second directorial venture 'Samar', over its title, will be solved amicably.

It is to be noted that a Madurai court has ordered an interim stay against the release of 'Samar', which has Vishal in the lead, while hearing a petition filed by a producer called Vijay.

In his plea, Vijay alleged that he was producing a movie under the title 'Samar', with newcomers in the lead roles. "We have registered the title in the Film and TV Producers Association last year and have renewed it this year," he said.

Stating that a Vishal-Trisha starrer film produced by Ramesh Thandra and directed by Thiru was also being made under the same name, Vijay requested the court to issue a stay on the film, following which the order was issued.

Reacting to this, Thiru says, "When we registered the titled Samar, we heard that another producer too was planning to register the same title. Following this, we solved the issue then itself. I don't know why it has surfaced again. And I am hopeful that my producer will solve the issue now."
