Mathiyazhagan of Kodambakkam and Mahalakshmi and Kannan from Saligramam had earlier filed a contempt of Court petition in the High Court of Madras.
The petition states, “We are members of South Indian Films, TV Serial & Dubbing Artistes’ Association and have dubbed for frontline heroes/heroines in many films. The fee for our work is paid directly to the Association and not to us.
Association deducts 10% of the payment and hands us over only 90%. We had earlier filed a case with the Hon’ble Court which directed last March that the recovery should be stopped; however, the recoveries are still made from our fees. We seek contempt of Court action against Association’s general secretary Prakash, president Selvaraj and TFPC president Thanu.”
After taking up the petition, the High Court ordered that notices be served to the accused on ‘contempt of Court’ charge.
‘Kalaipuli’ S. Thanu is the producer of Kabali and ‘Theri’.
