Madras High Court Lifts Stay On The Release Of Vijay Antony’s Kaali

Kaali Movie Stills Starring Vijay Antony, Amritha And Others

The Madras High Court has stayed the release of Vijay Antony’s film Kaali following a petition filed by film distributor William Alexander against the actor-director and his production company, Vijay Antony Film Corporation. According to the latest report, the high court has lifted the stay.

According to The Times of India, the complainant said that Antony sold the distribution rights of Annadurai at a higher price even though the film didn’t do well in the box office. As a result, he had to incur a loss. Later, Antony promised to give the distribution rights of Kaali at a lesser price but Alexander alleges that he didn’t keep his end of the promise. He filed the case seeking compensation of Rs 4.73 crores.

An action-drama, the film is produced Vijay Antony’s wife, Fatima Vijay Antony. Directed by Kiruthiga Udhayanidhi, the film has Antony play several roles – one as a doctor, one as a social worker, and the other as a villager. The film has him paired with four heroines – Anjali, Sunaina, Amritha, and Shilpa Manjunath. Nasser, Yogi Babu, RK Suresh, and Jayaprakash are part of the supporting cast.

The film was slated for a March release but owing to the ongoing theatre strike in Tamil Nadu, it was moved to April.
