Samantha Ruth Prabhu's character used the name of his hospital in her most recent film, 'Yashoda', which led a doctor in Hyderabad to bring a defamation lawsuit against the makers of the movie. While the civil court is hearing the lawsuit, the OTT release has been delayed. Earlier, the movie was slated to be released on the OTT platform on November 11, but it has been postponed until December 19.

The film's producers and filmmakers have also been accused by Dr. Mohan Kumar, owner of the Eva IVF Hospital, of allegedly "misusing the name and harming the reputation of the hospital." According to sources, the court has sent notifications requesting their responses.

The hospital's management submitted a lawsuit to the Hyderabad court. Additionally, they asserted in their appeal that the movie used their name improperly and damaged their reputation. The court then delayed the movie's OTT release after siding with the hospital administration. According to reports, the movie was scheduled to premiere on December 19.
