The release of actor Vijay Sethupathi’s Sindhubaadh, produced by K Productions, has officially been postponed since it did not hit the theatres on Friday as per schedule.

The Hyderabad High Court had ordered a stay on the release of the film over after Arka Media works, the makers of Baahubali, had filed a case against the producers of Sindhubaadh over unpaid dues.

Arka Media Works, makers of the magnum opus Baahubali series, had recently filed a case against SN Rajarajan of K Productions, who had distributed the Tamil version of the movie in Tamil Nadu, for the unpaid dues he owes to the production house. K Productions had bought the theatrical rights for Baahubali for Rs 28 crore and have paid Rs 12.5 crore. For the remaining amount, Rajarajan went ahead with a loan agreement with Shobu Yarlagadda which he has failed to repay.

It was reported that Sindhubaadh cannot be released when there’s a status quo in place. The status quo was ordered by the Hyderabad High Court for Sindhubaadh as well as Dhanush’s Enai Noki Paayum Thota on May 8 this year.

According to the court order, K Productions has to pay a remaining sum of Rs 17.6 crore to Arka Media to lift the ban on release of the movies.

On Thursday, Sindhubaadh's director SU Arun Kumar had told TNM that the film would release as per the plan. TNM reached out to Arun Kumar on Friday and is awaiting comment.

Sindhubaadh, with Vijay Sethupathi in the lead role, is directed by Pannaiyarum Padminiyum and Sethupathi director Arun Kumar and produced by SN Rajarajan and Shan Sutharsan under the production banners Vansan Movies and K Productions. The film has Anjali playing the female lead and has Vivek Prasanna and Linga playing important roles and music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
