It was on 23rd May 2014, the movie titled “Kochadaiiyaan” was released worldwide. The wass movie was captured through a technology called Motion Capturing. An animation of Superstar Rajinikanth and various other actors through Motion Capturing was done and the movie was made so. “Kochadaiiyaan” movie was directed by Rajinikanth’s younger daughter Soundarya Rajinikanth and produced by Mediaone Global Entertainment.
Latha Rajinikanth had signed as a guarantor for Mediaone Global Entertainment to “Ad Bureau”. Since Mediaone Global Entertainment failed to pay Ad Bureau, it automatically applies that the guarantor has to repay. As Latha Rajinikanth was the guarantor for the amount received by Mediaone Global Entertainment, she was supposed to settle the dues to them. Since Latha Rajinikanth failed to repay “Ad Bureau”, they initiated legal proceeding against Latha Rajinikanth in regard to this case. Latha Rajinikanth had lost the case in three bench Supreme Court where in she was ordered by the Apex Court to pay Rs 6.2 crores in 2014 plus interest up to date to “Ad Bureau Advertising Pvt Ltd.” who were the Post Producers of the movie Kochadaiiyaan.
Ad Bureau were the Post Producer and Tamil Nadu Theatrical Rights of the Movie “Kochadaiiyaan” were with “Ad Bureau”. The movie had collected a revenue of Rs. Ninety Crores and Latha Rajinikanth had double sold the same to EROS International joining hands with Mediaone Global Entertainment Ltd.
Further to escape the payment to “Ad Bureau”, a fake letter was created and produced under affidavit by Latha Rajinikanth in the city civil court of Karnataka, Bangalore.
This was investigated by Karnataka Police and was proved that Latha Rajinikanth who produced the fake letter in court, was the sole beneficiary and the fraud was committed by her u/s Sec 196, 199, 463, 420 rw 34 of IPC. In regard to this case the Apex court had ordered Latha Rajinikanth to face trial.
On 27th March 2021 Charge Sheet has been submitted in the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Court, Bangalore City, against the accused Latha Rajinikanth by Halsurugugate Police Station, Bangalore, Karnataka. It is to be noted that a FIR was registered in 2015 itself on Superstar Rajinikanth’s wife Latha Rajinikanth at Halsurugugate Police Station, Bangalore, Karnataka and Charge Sheet has been filed against her only after five years.
