The Hon’ble High Court, Madras stays the FIR registered against Mr.Gautham Vasudev Menon
The Directors of M/s.Photon Kathaas Production Pvt Ltd., and Mr.Gautham Vasudev Menon had filed Crl.O.P.No.1234 of 2014 and 1235 of 2014 before the Hon’ble High Court, Madras to quash the FIR No.38 of 2014 registered by the Inspector of Police, Central Crime Branch, Egmore, Chennai – 600 008 on the plea that, FIR has been registered at the instance of Mr.Jayaraman, Director of M/s.R.S Infotainment Pvt Ltd on the false premise that M/s.Photon Kathaas Production Pvt Ltd., has not shared the profits received from M/s.Fox Star Studios. Whereas the truth is no profits were made out of the movie “Ekk Dewana Tha” which is the Hindi remake of the movie “Vinnai Thandi Varuvaya” and M/s.Fox Star Studios has not given any money as profits to M/s.Photon Kathaas Production Pvt. Ltd.
It was also pleaded by the Counsel for the Directors of M/s.Photon Kathaas Production Pvt Ltd., and Mr.Gautham Vasudev Menon, in the aforesaid case that Mr.Jayaraman, Director of M/s.R.S Infotainment Pvt Ltd had suppressed the earlier orders of the Hon’ble High Court, Madras in the proceedings initiated by Mr.Gautham Vasudev Menon, as well as the report filed by the Central Crime Branch, Egmore and the report filed by the Inspector of Police, T. Nagar Police Station, after investigation on the very same complaint dated 03.04.13 filed by Mr.Jayaraman, Director of M/s.R.S Infotainment Pvt Ltd and also the proceedings of the Hon’ble Metropolitan Magistrate, Saidapet in this regard and so the registration of the aforesaid FIR is erroneous and liable to be quashed.
Taking all these factors into consideration, the Hon’ble High Court, Madras by its order dated 20.01.2014 was pleased to stay the FIR No.38 of 2014 until 03.02.2014 and issued notice to M/s.RS Infotainment Pvt. Ltd., to appear before the Court on the said date either in person or through counsel.
