According to Deccan Chronicle, "The court dismissed the petition on the ground that Chinni Kumar had approached the court without clean hands as he suppressed facts in respect of an application which was filed before a trial court. The court pointed out that the petitioner, after entering into a compromise with the producers, received a sum of Rs. 5 crore but was now making an allegation that he was misled by the filmmakers."
The petition was dismissed by the court and the petitioner was slapped with Rs. 10 lakh cost to be paid to the Prime Minister’s Covid-19 Relief Fund within 30 days.
