The Madras High Court issued notice to 28 theaters for collecting extra fares above the price fixed by the Tamil Nadu during the first four days of Thala Ajith’s Vivegam.

Justice M Duraiswamy also directed Tamil Nadu Government to file counter affidavit within two weeks and further hearing will be on September 11.

The order has been issued after a petitioner named G Devarajan filed a plea against 28 theaters for charging people with extra price in the opening weekend of Vivegam and requested Madras HC to slam 1 lakh/day fine to all the 28 theater owners.

It’s well known that TN Government refused to increase the ticket price in the state and the Producers Council’s recent talks with them didn't yield any fruitful outcome.
