In 2014, Rajinikanth got the stay from the Madras High Court to stop the release of Bollywood film ‘Main Hoon Rajinikanth.’ Later, the name of the film was changed to ‘Main Hoon Part-Time Killer.

In 2015, the Madras High Court issued a notice to Rajinikanth, on a plea by a financier to take action against the director, Kasthuri Raja, father of actor Dhanush. The financier also claimed that he gave money to Kasthuri Raja after he had used Rajinikanth’s name. He wanted Rajinikanth to ‘initiate action against his relative for misusing his name without his consent.’

In 2017, Lyca Productions announced that Rajinikanth will unveil a housing scheme by its charity wing ‘Gnanam Foundation’ for displaced Tamils in Jaffna, Sri Lanka. After this announcement, the pro-Tamil protested against Rajinikanth’s visit.
