Actor Udhayanidhi Stalin while speaking to the media said, “ The film Manithan which has me on the lead role is being released on 29th. Hansika has paired with me. Radha Ravi, Prakash Raj, Sangali Murugan and Vivek have donned important roles.
Earlier I have acted in romantic comedy films but this is a totally different one. The film is based on the Courts activities. I am donning the role of an advocate. Since we felt that Rajinikanth’s Manithan title will be suitable for the film we took the requisite permission and used it in our film.
There are no controversial scenes. We have not hurt the feelings of the advocates. The Censor Board members after seeing the film has certified it with a U certificate. Hence we have sent letter to the Government seeking the tax exemption. The commercial tax officers are seeing the film today. Earlier my films did not get tax exemption though my films were certified with U certificates. If I do not get tax exemption for Manithan I will approach the Court.”
