The incident came to light when writer K Nanjunda, who has penned dialogues for Sukumara, was roped in to write dialogues for Loose Mada. He introduced Prakash to Karthik. It is said that Prakash wanted to buy the rights of Sukumara. But the director claims he wanted only a few scenes from it and was willing to pay Rs 5 lakh.
Malayalam director Rajasenan's film Sukumara was launched two years ago and was dropped over the differences between the director and the producer. Later, actor Karthik Menon took the rights and decided to complete Sukumara on his own. He claims that he has already spent around Rs 40 lakh on the film and he does not want to sell the rights.
Meanwhile, Prakash says that Karthik Menon does not have the rights of the film and his story is also based on another movie Kurubana Rani. He has challenged if he does not give up the rights, he will create a third version of the story. However, his movie Loose Mada is about a fan obsessed with an actress.
