A copy of the court document was also attached along with the tweet.
Reportedly, the loan was taken to finish post-production work of the film Kochadaiiyaan which was directed by Soundarya and starred Rajinikanth and Deepika Padukone in lead roles.A petition filed by the ad agency was kept pending for three months. Following that, in February, a bench comprising of Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice R. Banumathi had stated that Mediaone would have to pay the amount within three months failing which the payment would have to be taken care of by Latha herself.
