Popular film producer KE Gnanavel Raja has filed a complaint against actor Kamal Haasan at the Tamil Film Producers’ Council (TFPC). He has said in his report that the actor has not repayed Rs 10 crore which he had borrowed at the time of Uthama Villain’s release in 2015.
Whoaaaa! This is a huge problem with the entertainment industry. The payment dilemma. Some of the crew in some productions, would have not even received their salary even after working on a couple of projects.
According to the complaint filed by Gnanavel Raja, Kamal Haasan approached him for Rs 10 crores as he was facing a financial crunch during Uthama Villain’s release, which he had produced on first copy basis for N Lingusamy’s Tirupati Brothers.
As per the agreement entered into by KE Gnanavel Raja, Kamal Haasan agreed to work in a movie produced by the former’s production house. However, the project never took off even after four years, which has prompted the producer to file a complaint.
Uthama Villain, a comedy drama, was directed by Ramesh Aravind and written by Kamal Haasan. The film was presented by N Lingusamy in association with Kamal Haasan and produced by S Chandrahasan for Raaj Kamal Films International and N.Subash Chandrabose for Thirupathi Brothers Film Media.
Meanwhile, Kamal Haasan is busy with the Shankar directorial Indian 2. The film’s technical crew includes Anirudh Ravichander for music, A Sreekar Prasad for editing and R Rathnavelu for cinematography. The film is produced by A Subhashkaran under his banner Lyca Productions on a budget of Rs 200 crores. The crew after wrapping a schedule in Chennai moved to Rajahmundry where the film is being currently shot.
