'Varisu': Thalapathy Vijay's film receives a legal notice from Animal Welfare Board for using elephants

Thalapathy Vijay's film 'Varisu' has landed in legal trouble as the Animal Welfare Board of India has issued a show cause notice to its producers Venkateswara Creations for using five elephants in the film without seeking permission from officials.

Thalapathy Vijay's film 'Varisu' has landed in legal trouble as the Animal Welfare Board of India has issued a show cause notice to its producers Venkateswara Creations for using five elephants in the film without seeking permission from officials. They have directed the makers to submit a detailed explanation seeking reasons behind the violations of the law within seven days failing which AWBI will ‘take any or all such action as it may deem to consider proper and necessary for the welfare of the animals.

The statement of the board reads, 'The Board has received a complaint regarding illegal shooting of animals by M/s Venkateswara Creations using Elephants-5 without the pre-shoot permission from the Animal Welfare Board of India in Tamil Film “Varisu”, which is the violation of Performing Animals (Registration) Rules, 2001 (as amended in 2002). The Board has not received the Pre-shoot application from you for Tamil Film “Varisu” till date'

The makers of the film are yet to respond to this legal notice.

Directed by Vamsi Paidipally, 'Varisu' is scheduled for the 2023 Pongal release. The film also stars Rashmika Mandanna.
