Raghunath who is producing Sudeep starrer 'Leader' says he will move to court if he doesn't get justice. Recently Raghunath had announced a film starring Sudeep. Media reports say that the film has been titled as 'Leader'. Just a week after the film was announced, another film called 'The Leader Shivarajkumar' was announced.
Raghunath cried foul saying that he had registered the title at KFCC and it is wrong to give another title which is almost similar to that of the film's title. However, even before the title 'The Leader Shivarajkumar' was registered by the KFCC, producer Tarun Shivappa of 'The Leader Shivarajkumar' had acquired another title called 'Mass Leader' from producer-writer Ajay Kumar. Just when the matter looked like resolved, producer Raghunath has said he will move to court if he doesn't get justice.
'I don't understand what is the purpose of registration.I had registered the titled three years back and has been renewing it on time. In spite of that the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce has given a title called 'Mass Leader' after we had registered the title 'Leader'. If somebody can add suffix or prefix to any registered title, then there is no point in registering any title. So, I am planning to send a protest letter to the KFCC in this regard on Tuesday. I am not on anybody's side. I want justice. If I don't get justice, then I will get legal suggestion from my advocates and move to court' says Raghunath.
