    Vijay Sethupathi’s Sindhubaadh was expected to release in theatres on Friday, June 21. The movie however has come into trouble following non-payment of dues. Arka Media Works, the makers of Baahubali, filed the case against Sindhubaadh's producer Rajarajan.

    Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni of Arka Media Works gave Tamil Nadu distribution rights to K Productions, which is being headed by Rajarajan. Despite Baahubali's massive success, Rajarajan did not settle dues with Shobu and Prasad. K Productions have reportedly managed to pay only Rs 12.5 crore out of the theatrical rights bought for the epic blockbuster for Rs 28 crore. Rajarajan took a loan from the producers for the rest of the amount.

    The Baahubali makers thus had to file a case against Rajarajan's films Enai Noki Paayum Thota and Sindhubaadh as compensation for the money owed to them. The Hyderabad high court has also issued an interim stay against the releases till the dues are settled.

    There was uncertainity over the release of Vijay Sethupathi’s film since a long time. However trade expert Sreedhar Pillai confirmed the same by tweeting, "National multiplexes in Chennai and Chengalpet refuse to slot @VijaySethuOffl biggie #Sindhubaadh in their Friday (June 21) programming chart till they get a green signal from Digital Service Providers (DSP). [sic]"

    Read his tweet here:

    Reports in India Today state that Rajarajan tried to associate with another producer but theatre owners maintained that they won't be able to screen the film without a NOC (No Objection Certificate) from the Digital Service Providers (DCP). The DCP, of course, refused from providing an NOC since the case is in court.

    Sindhubaadh is directed by Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Arun Kumar. The movie is produced by SN Rajarajan and Shan Sutharsan under the production banners Vansan Movies and K Productions.
