Actor Vijay, director A.R. Murugadoss and producers Lyca Production have been slapped with a defamation suit for making a reference to the 2G spectrum case in their recently released Tamil movie ‘Kaththi’.

The defamation case was filed on Tuesday in the magistrate’s court.

According to complainant R. Ramasubramanian, a dialogue in the film suggested that corruption occurred in the 2G spectrum case when the matter is still being heard in the court.

“How can a film conclude that all those involved in the 2G spectrum case are corrupt when the case is still being heard in court? The dialogue portrays all those people in poor light and damages their dignity,” Ramasubramanian said.

The court granted permission to file the petition and adjourned the case till November 11.
