Earlier, we reported to you that Samantha's new film 'Yashoda' landed in legal trouble due to a case filed by EVA IVF Hospital for showing their hospital in a negative light. Last month, the Hyderabad Court restrained the movie from debuting on the OTT platforms till December 30.

The latest news is that the issues are sorted out as the movie team and the hospital management has recently arrived at a truce. The makers have agreed to blur all the visuals of the hospital. Now, Yashoda is gearing up for a digital release on Amazon Prime Video on December 9.

The producer of Yashoda, Sivalenka Krishna Prasad, said, "We have decided to blur the logos of EVA in over 80 places in the film. We had no idea that an IVF centre with the name EVA is operational and we would like to reiterate that it was just a coincidence and the film is a fictional work. We neither have the intention to demean an individual nor a hospital in that regard. As the issue was brought to our notice, we are blurring all the visuals and muting the related dialogues in Yashoda. The OTT version of the film will not have any visuals or audio about EVA IVF. I take this opportunity to thank the EVA group for their cooperation."

Welcoming the decision, Mohan Rao, the MD of EVA IVF said, "We served notices to protect our centre's reputation in society and would want other filmmakers to know about our work in the city. We are pleased with the resolution provided by the makers, and we are also happy with the revised cut. We would like to thank the makers of Yashoda for rectifying the issue peacefully."
