Public Notice issued to Trade Players, Digital Platforms regarding ENPT Movie

ENPT Public Notice
“Enai Noki Paayum Thotta” is a movie that has been directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon and star-cast by Dhanush in the lead role. The movie which is ready for release for more than a year is struggling due to financial disputes. The reason behind the movie getting unreleased is because of the Interim Injunction availed by the producers of the movie “Bhahubali 2″ M/s.Arka Media Works. Records show that S.N.Rajarajan of K Productions had failed to honour the payment pending to Arka Media Works pertaining to “Bhahubali 2″ and hence Arka Media Works had approached the Hon’ble court seeking justice in this regard.

Few month ago Arka Media Works had availed an Interim Injunction restaring anyone from releasing the movie Sindhubadh & Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta, since S.N.Rajarajan was directly or indirectly involved in production of these movies. Sindhubadh was later taken over by a different company and Vijay Sethupathi had made a request with Arka Media Works and a part payment was settled by one of the producers of Sindhubadh. But the status-quo order of restaring the release of the movie Enai Noki Paayum Thotta continues till date.

In the mean-time, the director of the movie Gautham Vasudev Menon ande producers of the movie Escape Artistes Motion Picture have approached Ishari Ganesh, Producer who owns Vels Film International, one of the biggest production houses in Tamil Industry to release the movie Enai Noki Paayum Thotta. Ishari Ganesh knowingly or un-knowingly about the complications regarding the financial disputes of Enai Noki Paayum, Arka Media, S.N.Rajarajan and Escape Artistes Motion Pictures, he had accepted to release the movie.

Vels Film International has been advertising the release date of the movie as November 29 on all social media platforms and daily newspapers. Trade players have good-will on Vels Film International and had assumed that the financial dispute regarding Ennai Nokki Paayum Thotta has been resolved. Arka Media Works who came to know about the release date publicities carried out by Vels Film Internationa has now sent a “Public Notice” to Trade Players, Digital Platforms, Satelitte Channels and other film traders not to enter into any agreement of trade in releasing the movie “Enai Noki Paayum Thotta”, since there is a status-quo order pending in the Hob’ble High Court of Hyderabad.
