Samantha Ruth Prabhu starrer, Yashoda, which did great business at the box office, landed itself in legal trouble after EVA IVF hospital authorities filed a complaint against the movie. They claimed the movie showed their hospital in a negative light and upon hearing such claims, the Hyderabad Civil Court delayed the OTT release of the movie.
Now according to the latest updates, the makers of Yashoda have decided to blue the ‘EVA’ hospital logo in the movie. Talking about this, Sivalenka Krishna, producer of Yashoda said, “They have cleared all the legal issues and the makers will blur all the EVA’s logos in ‘Yashoda’ in over 80+ places in the film. We didn’t know that there existed an IVF (In vitro fertilization) center with the above brand name, it’s purely coincidental and we didn’t make the film to demean or harm anyone in particular or any hospital to that matter. Since it was brought to our notice we are considering blurring all its logos and muting all its dialogues or sounds in the film.”
We requested a week’s time to do the above in theatres to which the hospital management and court have agreed keeping all the technical issues in mind. So, the digital/OTT version of the film will not have any of the above logos/ brand names shown/spelled in the film. The film is in its 3rd week running successfully in theatres now and we’ll announce when the film will come on OTT next month, we want to thank the EVA hospital group for their peaceful cooperation,” he further added.
This Hari- Harish directorial was released on November 11 and it was set to stream on OTT platforms on December 19 but due to the complaint the date was postponed.
