Bengaluru: An FIR has been lodged against Latha Rajinikanth, wife of superstar Rajinikanth, in connection with the veracity of a document submitted by her for securing an injunction order, the city police official said on Monday.

A lawyer for Rajinikanth’s wife, however, dismissed the charge and warned of legal action against the party that had filed the complaint.

“The court has referred the matter to the jurisdictional police station which is Ulsoor Gate police station, where a case has been registered. We will investigate it under various sections of the Indian Penal Code, including Section 420,” said Police Commissioner M.N. Reddi.

Latha Rajinikanth secured a gag order against media in December 2014 from airing an alleged financial dispute between her and Chennai-based Ad Bureau Associates, which emanated during the post-production of the movie “Kochadaiyaan” in which her husband acted.

“A dispute arose between both these parties and this particular matter was being covered in various news channels and media and papers in Chennai,” said Reddi about the original controversy.

“At that point in time, (Latha) Rajinikanth appeared before a court through a lawyer and requested an injunction order to restrain these media groups from airing these news. And she secured an injunction order,” he added.

However, Ad Bureau Associates alleged in another court that the document produced by Latha Rajinikanth is purportedly fake and endorsed by a non-existing media association, said Reddi.

Meanwhile, Shyamsundar, the lawyer representing Latha Rajinikanth, said that Ad Bureau Associates is trying to use the vulnerabilities of his client’s celebrity status.

“Having failed in all their ill-minded efforts, they have gone to the magistrate’s court and have filed private complaint under Section 200 of the Criminal Procedure Code,” he said.

“Generally the protocol is that whenever a private complaint is filed, the magistrate would refer it for an investigation. It is at that stage, and it is totally a false complaint and there is absolutely no fabrication of documents…nothing has been complained,” he added.

“It is sheer case of blackmailing and we are going to take very very serious legal action,” said Shyamsundar. (IANS)

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
