Dealing with the writ petition filed by senior BJP leader N Indrasena Reddy seeking a direction in this direction said that they used the title for promotion of the film there by violating the guidelines of the Supreme Court. Counsel for actor Brahmanandam told to the court that he had written letters to the producers to remove the suffix.
