Kanna Laddu Thinna Aasaiya (KLTA) is produced by Comedy Superstar Santhanam under his banner Handmade Films along with Rama Narayanan of Thendral Films. The film is directed by KS Manikandan and stars Santhanam himself along with Power Star Srinivasan, Sethu and Vishaka Singh in the lead roles. Actor/director Bhagyaraj had filed a case against the makers of the film stating that the basic plot of KLTA carries a strong resemblance to his yesteryear classic Indru Poi Naalai Va, where three guys try to woo the same girl. He added that several people who are a part of KLTA have told him about the striking resemblance of the film with his film. He also accused the makers of falsely claiming to have acquired the rights of Indru Poi Naalai Va.

Following Bhagyaraj’s complaint, the court has directed the makers of KLTA add a thanks to Bhagyaraj in the title cards and also that the story is inspired by Indru Poi Naalai Va. With this the dust around the controversy of KLTA has settled and the film is all set to hit the screens on January 13.
