Passing interim orders, Justice K Venkatraman, judge of the Madras High Court, said, 'I will watch the movie on 26 January along with the leaders who have objected to it and pass orders on 28 January. Till then, the release should be postponed.'
The film was to release on 25 January. Kamal Haasan, who filed two written petitions, mentioned that there was no notice served on Kamal Haasan before banning the movie and that he had no knowledge of such an action coming up and there was no order against which he could file a petition on.
'We have filed two written petitions: One seeking a declaration that the action is a constitutional and another writen petition for a mandamus for forbearing from any more interfering with the right to peacefully releasing the film,' said the counsel appeared for Kamal Haasan.
