The News Minute | February 03, 2015 | 09.00 am IST Tamil writer Perumal Murugan has voiced his dissent against a newspaper advertisement regarding an upcoming movie named Madhorubhagan, named after his controversial book. Murugan had earlier disowned his novel and publicly quit writing after protests in his home town over the contents in his book. However, he explained that he had not given anyone the right to use the title or the story of the book in a film, reported The Hindu. He said that it was distressing that people were trying to take hold of his situation and were turning it into an advantage, said the report. However, according to New Indian Express, the film's director Aadhira Pandilakshmi said that the title of the film had been registered almost a year ago with the Producer's Council.
