The ‘Sivakasi’ row that started years ago seems to have reached its end. For, Vijay, the hero of the movie, along with producer A M Rathnam, director Perarasu and comedian M S Baskar, expressed regret in the Madras High Court on Wednesday for ‘hurting the feelings of advocates’ in the film.
He also requested the Court to quash all the 13 defamation cases he is facing over the issue. Following this, Tamil Nadu Advocates Association President S Prabakran accepted the regret and wanted the Court to pass a detail order so as to ensure that no similar incidents occurred in the future.
Advocates in various parts of the State had initiated separate defamation cases against Vijay, Rathnam, Baskar and Perarasu, claiming that the legal fraternity had been depicted in poor light in the film. A Ranipet Court also issued summons and warrants.
