However the movie also faced lots of controversies. A person named Rajasekar claimed that the movie was stolen from his short film named ‘Thaaga Boomi’. Even a case was lodged against ARM and he just provided muted response whenever media throws a question
Recently we reported that this movie will be remade in Telugu with Chiranjeevi doing lead role. V.V.Vinayak will direct the project. But now some villagers have requested Chiranjeevi not to act and they have sent a letter with signatures from every person.
Village people from Tanjore district and the villages around the district wrote a letter to Chiranjeevi mentioning the fact that he should not act in ‘Kaththi’ remake, venture as the script belongs to Rajasekar and not A.R.Murugadoss.
