Kamal Haasan’s controversial Vishwaroopam celebrated 100 days on Friday (May 17). However the troubles of his production house Raj Kamal are far from over.

The Tamil Nadu Film Exhibitors Association with whom Kamal had a running battle during the run-up to the film’s release is looking to register a criminal case against Raj Kamal Films International for alleged forgery.

Remember during the stand-off between Kamal and theatre owners during Vishwaroopam DTH controversy , the former had approached Competition Commission of India alleging that the association had passed a ‘resolution’ banning the release of any film in the theatre if the DTH version was released.

Stating that it had never passed any resolution, the association wondered as to how Raj Kamal could make such a complaint. Later it was found that it was on the letterhead of Tamil Nadu Theatre Owners Association, an organisation that did not exist. It was found that the resolution was a forged document.

 Tamil Nadu Film Exhibitors Association has filed a case in the Madras High Court, who has sent a notice to Raj Kamal Films and three others including Chennai Police Commissioner, to act on the complaint regarding the forged document.
