After crossing all hurdles, the film is gearing up for a worldwide release on July 12 in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. Just a couple of days before the release, the movie landed in another trouble.

An individual named Aasaan Rajendran approached the Madhurai court requesting to ban the film, alleging that director Shankar used the Marma Kala techniques without taking his permission.

Marma Kala or Varmakalai is an ancient Tamil art form which involves targeting a person’s body pressure points to hurt them. The protagonist in the Bharateeyudu franchise is an expert in this art form.

Aasaan Rajendran is a trainer of Marma Kala and Martial Arts. Director Shankar was inspired by a book written by Rajendran and shot a few Marma Kala scenes in Bharateeyudu.

Ranjendran also trained Kamal Haasan in a few techniques of this art form during the filming of Bharateeyudu.

However, he argues that the team shot Marma Kala techniques in Bharateeyudu 2 without taking his permission.

Thus, he requested the court to ban the film’s release on both theatre and OTT platforms. The court heard the case today.

It is heard that the makers of Bharateeyudu 2 sought additional time to file a response against Rajendran’s complaint. Thus, the court adjourned its judgement to July 11 while the movie is supposed to release on July 12th.
