In his complaint, producer Romesh Babu states that he had sold the satellite rights of Kaavalan to a private television channel for 5.5 crores. The TV channel has already paid 2.75 crores to him. But despite repeated requests, the channel has refused to clear the remaining amount.
Recently, Shakthi Chidambaram intervened in the financial issue between Romesh Babu and the TV channel. He asked Romesh to give a written statement that he is willing to forego 2.75 crores. Meanwhile, he also threatened him of dire consequences if he does not forego the balance money.
