Chennai: Filmmaker Mani Ratnam's latest release Chekka Chivantha Vaanam has set the box office on fire. The movie not only opened to a positive response from critics, but is also getting a lot of love at the box office. 

According to Times of India, a report claimed that a person called to threaten the director to remove some dialogues from his latest movie Chekka Chivantha Vaanam. Later, a team of bomb detection and disposal squad conducted a thorough search of the office located in Kesava Perumal Kovil Street at Mylapore, Chennai, and declared it a hoax call. 

Mani Ratnam lodged a police complaint against the miscreant, who made the threat call. Meanwhile, police have begun an investigation into the matter. 

Apparently, the dialogues used in the film are controversial and someone has taken offence to it. The political thriller is one of Mani's more successful films in recent times. Not only did the film open well, but its advance bookings were also exemplary. 

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, featuring  Prakash Raj, Arvind Swamy, Arun Vijay, Simbu, Vijay Sethupathi and Aditi Rao Hydar, hit the theatres on September 27.

The movie is a gangster drama, revolving around a family feud. The film has already raked in over Rs 30 crore from Tamil Nadu alone within four days of its release.
