We all thought Pulimurugan and Thoppil Joppan would go one on one for the best release of October. The release date was stayed by an order by Ernakulam District Court after a petition filed by a film producer, Shibu Thekkumpuram regarding the copyrights act. The film directed by Johny Antony was slated to release on October 7 along with Mohanlal’s Puli Murugan.
As per the petition filed in court, Abdul Nazar, the producer of the movie had sold the copyright of the movie to Shibu for Rs 25 lakhs. However now producer Noushad has come forward saying the movie will release as scheduled and that he does not even know who is Shibu Thekkumpuram.
