Junglee Pictures has acquired rights to make a film on a woman named, Jeevajothi Santhakumar and her battle against hotelier P Rajagopal, an accused in a 2001 murder case. The official handle of Junglee Pictures confirmed the news on social media. It said, “It’s official! Junglee Pictures have acquired the life rights of Jeevajothi Santhakumar, and are all set to bring to screen an untold story inspired by true events. In our story, while one character is a true survivor, the other is a classic example of what power and delusion can lead to. #AStoryThatMustBeTold #Jeevajothis18YearStruggle #DosaKing” As per the case, P Rajagopal, who was the founder of Saravana Bhavan, a popular South Indian food chain, wanted to marry Jeevajothi, the daughter of one of his employees at his restaurant.
As Jeevajothi was already married, Rajagopal hatched a criminal conspiracy to eliminate her husband, Prince Santhakumar and in 2001, Prince was murdered and his body was found in Kodaikanal city of Karnataka.
A sessions court had convicted Rajagopal and four others to ten years of imprisonment, but later the Madras High Court set aside the sessions court's order and increased the jail term to life sentence. In July 2019, Rajagopal passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest.
