While Ajith Kumar's Billa 2 trailer launch function has been cancelled for some reasons, the teaser and poster launch event of Vijay's Thuppakki too seems to be delayed following an injunction order from the court, which has directed the makers of the film not to use the 'Thuppakki' title in any form.

Originally, Thuppakki trailer launch was supposed to held on the occasion of Vijay's birthday i.e., June 22, but the plans were changed by director AR Murugadoss, who felt that the event might go unnoticed due to Saguni release. However, he had promised to deliver the trailer in the first week of July.

Now, the court has granted the interim injunction till July 17 for the makers of the film from using the title Thuppakki and its logo after Ravi Devan, a former associate of Kamal Hassan, filed the case. In his complaint, he claimed that the title of Vijay's film sounds similar to his movie Kalla Thuppakki and the logo too has some resemblance.

Without any other option, the movie bosses of Thuppakki are forced to delay the trailer launch event, says the buzz. The function is likely to happen by the end of this month. However, the film directed by AR Murugadoss stars Vijay, Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Gowda in the leads. The movie will hit the screens for Independence Day.
