The outfit alleged that the film crew had violated norms and used the elephant, Chirackal Kalidasan, for the shooting of the movie at Thrissur recently without obtaining any pre-shoot certificate from AWBI as per the Performing Animals Registration Rule 2001.

The Thrissur-based Task Force sent a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently demanding action against the producer, director and camera man of the film, and the owner and mahout of the elephant in this regard.
