Director Ameer Sultan and producer Gnanavel Raja's dispute over royalty issue of the Telugu version of Paruthiveeran seems to have gone to next level, after a couple of technicians refused to participate in the Alex Pandian shoots. In fact, several crew members have urged Studio Green to settle the issue with Ameer before starting the work of its forthcoming Tamil film.
Recently, Ameer Sultan lodged a complaint against Studio Green and Gemini Labs over Paruthiveeran royalty issue. The filmmaker alleged that they did not seek his permission to release the dubbed version of the Tamil movie in Telugu.
Reports say that the shooting was supposed to commence on Monday and the craft members of PEFSI were gearing up to start the work but camera, crane operators and the lightmen did not turn up claiming that the production house should solve the issue with Ameer if they want them to work. Later, the Producers Council intervened and managed to convince the workers to join the shoot, but shooting could not commence on that day.
However, director Ameer has denied his hand in the issue and it is being spread by the people, who wants to tarnish his image.
