SC asks Latha Rajinikanth to face trial for not clearing dues to firm

The Supreme Court today asked actor politician Rajinikanth's wife Latha to face a criminal case for failing to clear dues of Rs 6.2 crore to Ad Bureau, a film distribution company which did post-production work on the film "Kochadayan".

Setting aside a Karnataka High Court order of March 10, 2016 quashing a criminal case pending before a Bengaluru magistrate, Supreme Court judge Ranjan Gogoi said "it is a fit case for commencement of trial".

On Feb 20 last, the apex court said Mediaone Global Entertainment Ltd., a company in which Ms. Latha Rajinikanth is a director, should clear the dues to Ad-Bureau Advertising Pvt. Ltd. within three months.

When she failed to pay the dues, Ad Bureau filed an appeal in the Supreme Court.
