Samrajyam 2: Son of Alexander, which is a sequel to the Mammootty blockbuster Samrajyam. The film has landed in the trouble after its scriptwriter Muhammad Shafique Kunnungal aka MSK alleged that he has written the story and screenplay for it, but the makers of the flick have denied him the credit for his efforts.
Scriptwriter Muhammad Shafique Kunnungal held a press conference on Friday to hurl his anger against the director and producers of the film Samrajyam 2: Son of Alexander. He claimed that during the announcement of the movie in June 2013, producers Ajmal Hassan and Byju Adithyan had introduced him as the scriptwriter to the media. But with the completion of the film, they have credited the story and screenplay to director Perarasu. MSK adds, "This is unethical!"
Muhammad Shafique Kunnungal said that he has handed over the script to director Perarasu and he was present at the shooting sites including the final one in Dubai to clear any doubts. But at the later stage, he was shocked to read the media reports that credited the story and script to Perarasu. MSK called up producer Ajmal, who apparently did not heed his plea. Now, he has approached FEFKA, the union of film technicians, who have promised to get him justice.
Samrajyam II: Son of Alexander is gangster film, which has been directed by Perarasu. Unni Mukundan will play the lead role of Jordan, the son of Alexander who was the protagonist in the prequel. Ashi will play the female lead making her debut in Malayalam. This movie, which has been made with a budget of Rs 35 crores, will be one of the most expensive films ever made in Malayalam.
