Ad Bureau, in a case filed in 2016, had alleged that Media One Global Entertainment, in which Latha is a director, had signed an agreement to turn over the distribution rights of the film, but they were later handed over to Eros International.
Kochadaiiyan, directed by Rajinikanth’s daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth, and starring the Superstar and Deepika Padukone in lead roles, was a box office failure.
