AR Murugadoss met the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Dr Karunanidhi and briefed about the harassment that he experienced with the Salem police a couple of days before. The director was unceremoniously dumped into a car on Friday and taken to Salem by the Salem Town Police for interrogation regarding a complaint filed by Ghajini producer Salem Chandrasekhar to collect his 'dues' for Ghajini remake rights.
Murugadoss along with the Directors Association functionaries SA Chandrasekhar and P Vasu met the Chief Minister at his residence and bitterly complained about the treatment meted out to him. After the meeting was over, the cop, caused for all these embarrassments was suspended by an order from the CM office.
The Tamil Film Producers Council has also asked producer Salem Chandrasekhar for an explanation on why he didn't lodge a complaint with them and instead rushed to the police, which led for many unwanted developments.
When we asked Murugadoss about the issue, he said that the producer wrongly gave the complaint on him. "If he had any issues regarding the remake rights he has to discuss all those things only with Allu Aravind, who got the right for remake the film in all other Indian languages including Hindi!" said Murugadoss.
