All is not well between industrialist-turned-producer Ashok Kheny and director Indrajit Lankesh. Ashok Kheny has once again appeared before the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC). He has filed a complaint against Indrajit Lankesh stating that he has violated the agreement, which was done between them at KFCC office ten months ago, by taking up another project called Thunta Thunti before completing his three projects.
Earlier, Ashok Kheny had lodged a complaint against the director at KFCC. In his complaint, he had stated that Indrajit Lankesh had taken advance amount to do three movies. But before completing the movies, he had signed some other project and busy with its shooting. Then, KFCC had mediated and made a compromise between the two. It had warned the director not to sign any project before finishing his movies and he had accepted it.
Now, Indrajit has violated the conditions of their agreement by starting the shooting of his upcoming Kannada movie Thunta Thunti just after ten months after he compromised with him. KFCC has already forwarded Ashok Kheny"s complaint to him. The President of KFCC, Dr. Jayamala is hoping to convince the director to drop his movie and finish his three movies first.
Talking to the media, Dr. Jayamala said, “Both are the members of KFCC. And they are making allegations against each other, which is not at all good for them. We are trying hard to solve their problems. Ten months ago, we had sorted out all the issue between them, when Kheny had filed a case against him."
Meanwhile, it is said that director Indrajit Lankesh is busy shooting the movie Thunta Thunti, which features Sammir Dattani a.k.a Dhyaan and his Monalisa co-star Sada in the lead roles. Earlier, Golden star Ganesh was said to have been selected for the film, but it is said that he opted out of the project when he came to know about the rift between Ashok Kheny and director Indrajit Lankesh.
