October 14, 2020: The Madras High Court on Wednesday warned of imposing costs on actor Rajinikanth for rushing to the  court against Greater Chennai Corporation's demand of Rs.6.5 lakhs property tax for his Raghavendra marriage hall located at Kodambakkam in Tamil Nadu.



Rajinikanth had moved the HC after the corporation sent him a notice asking the Tamil superstar to pay the said amount for the hall 'Raghavendra Kalyana Mandapam'.



The matter was placed before Justice Anita Sumanth.



Rajinikanth has filed the plea through his counsel Vijayan Subramanian.



Rajinikanth in his plea said that the marriage hall has remained vacant since March 24, 2020 when the coronavirus lockdown was announced. Hence, no revenue had been earned in the bargain. The corporation had sent a property tax notice to the Tamil superstar on a half-yearly basis, from April to September.
