Recently, actor Vijay found himself drowning with issues pertaining to the compensations of film distributors and even before he could get out of that, another matter threw him into troubled waters again.
Johnny Thomas who hails from West Mambalam has filed a petition in the Saidapet Court. He states in the petition, “I had produced the Malayalam film Bodyguard in 2008 and J K Siddique has to directed this film. He was paid Rs 40 Lakhs as remuneration. The film did well at the box office."
"While drawing up the agreement there was a condition stipulating that the director should complete the film in 45 days. But the director completed the film in 120 days which resulted in additional expense for me. Now without my knowledge he is producing this film in Tamil with the title Kavalkaran which has Vijay in the lead role. He has no right to remake this film without my permission." He added.
He said " In view of the foregoing, I requested the Court to direct the police to register a case against him. The 11th Court Magistrate who enquired about the petition, directed the police to look into the matter and submit a report."
