Legal troubles are pouring in for superstar Rajinikanth as Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court has issued summons to him and the producers of the flick ‘Lingaa.’

The 65-year-old actor has been asked to appear before the court.

The case relates to a writ petition filed with the Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court by K.R. Ravi Rathinam, who has alleged theft of his script by the makers of ‘ Lingaa’.

In December 2014, the bench ordered producer T.N. Venkatesh to deposit a sum of Rs. five crore by demand draft and another Rs. five crore by way of a bank guarantee before releasing the movie.

Though the producer complied with the order as he had to release the movie immediately, he appealed against it in the Supreme Court, which passed an order on March 20, 2015, directing him to furnish only Rs. one crore as bank guarantee.
