High Court Refuses To Halt ‘Baahubali 2’ Release

Baahubali 2 Leaks

The High Court of Madras has refused to stop the release of Baahubali 2, the sequel to the mega budget Baahubali, and instead, has asked Sri Green Productions’ S Saravanan to appear before the court, according to a report in Maalai Malar. Sri Green has the release rights for the film in Tamil Nadu. 

Earlier, a petition had been filed in the High Court, on behalf of Ace Films, asking for a ban on the release of the film Baahubali 2. The petitioner had pleaded that S Saravanan had borrowed a sum of Rs 1 Crore 18 Lakhs, which he had agreed to return, together with interest of Rs 10 Lakhs, on a date before the release of the film. Prabhu Deva Studios is the other party in the agreement. 


The petitioner notes that S Saravanan, however, has been negotiating with third parties for the release of the film. The Times of India also reports that a discussion was held during the audio launch of the film held recently, but the talks fell through, and S Saravanan has since requested an extension in the deadline, saying he will return the money after the film’s release.

The petitioner has therefore moved the court asking for an immediate return of the money, and for the movie’s release to be halted till the loan has been repaid. 

Hearing the petition, Justice Kalyanaraman refused to halt the release of the film, but has issued summons to S Saravanan to reply to the court by April 18.
