Rajinikanth’s upcoming film ‘Jailer’ has run into trouble. The reason for this is the title of the film. A Malayalam filmmaker has demanded that Nelson Dilip Kumar’s film. At least in Kerala, its name should be changed. He even went to court alleging that the makers of the Tamil film had stolen his title. First of all he registered this name. And now they have demanded to change the name only in Kerala state. As you know, Rajinikanth plays a jailer in this film and fans are very curious about his role. Also, nothing special related to the story of the film has been revealed so far, but people have high hopes from Rajinikanth’s character in ‘Jailer’.
The title has to be changed for this
In fact, there has been an uproar in Kerala itself about changing the name of Rajinikanth’s film ‘Jailer’. This is because, when this film is hitting the screens. Then another Malayalam film with the same title is releasing. It stars Malayalam actor Dhyan Srinivasan and is based on a period thriller. While Sakir Madathil and NK Mohammed are the director and producer of the film.
Demand from Malayalam filmmakers
Although the stories of both the films are not similar, the makers of the Malayalam film ‘Jailer’ feel that having the same title will cause confusion among the general audience. Sakir Madathil held a press conference in which he revealed that this is a serious issue. He said he has approached Sun Pictures, the production company backing Rajinikanth’s film. Meanwhile, he came to know that the makers of the Tamil film will not change the title. Even if it is Kerala.
The title of Rajinikanth’s film will not change
The Malayalam film team opined that they are making a short film. So they are already at a disadvantage to hold this title. Apart from this, Mohanlal, one of the biggest stars of Malayalam cinema, is also in Rajinikanth’s film ‘Jailer’. Hence he feels that the change in title will not affect the collection of the film. On the other hand, Sun Pictures released an official statement. It said that the Tamil film is made with a very big star and the production company itself is corporate, so they cannot change the title.
