<p>Director AL Vijay is reportedly planning to create a web series based on the well-known murder case of cinema journalist CN Lakshmikanthan. Actors Nazriya and Natty Natarajan are said to have been cast in significant parts for the series. A statement from the OTT platform on the series is anticipated shortly.</p>
<p>A gang of unidentified attackers assaulted Tamil cinema journalist CN Lakshmikanthan on November 8, 1944, and one of them stabbed him in the belly. According to reports, Lakshmikanthan was on his way home after seeing a friend when the event happened near Vepery, Chennai (formerly Madras). He passed away from his wounds at 4:15 in the morning on November 9, 1944.</p>
<p>Then, based on Lakshmikanthan’s account of what happened, the police detained around six people in the days that followed the murder. Filmmaker SM Sriramulu Naidu and performers MK Thyagaraja Bhagavathar and NS Krishnan were among those detained.</p>
<p>At the time of his arrest, Thyagaraja Bhagavathar was considered the greatest actor in the Tamil cinema industry and was at the height of his career. Of course, it led to a controversy in Tamil Nadu. When he and NS Krishnan were convicted guilty of the crime and Sriramulu Naidu was pronounced not guilty, his circumstances deteriorated. Their appeal was dismissed by the Madras High Court.</p>
<p>Thus the two actors were had to remain behind bars until 1947. The charges were withdrawn after a retrial only after the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council successfully appealed. Bhagavathar passed away in 1959 and was never able to restore his wealth or fame after this occurrence.</p>
