Saimira, one of the popular corporate film producers in Kollywood
has sent a legal notice to Kamal Hassan and asked him to return the
advance amount Rs.10.90 crores that was given for Marmayogi.
Few months ago, both Kamal and Saimira had entered an agreement
to produce Marmayogi as a joint venture with the investment of
Rs.100 crores. Saimira paid a whopping Rs. 10.90 crores to Kamal as
advance. But due to some financial crisis, the company has
postponed the venture, but not dropped it.
Meanwhile Kamal has started his new film Unnaipol Oruvan under
his own banner, Rajkamal International. Now he is busy in releasing
the film on September 18th worldwide.
At this juncture, Pyramid Saimira, the company under
reconciliation process after continuous losses in film production,
has sent a legal notice to Kamal Hassan to return the advance
amount immediately after receiving the notice.
In that notice Advocate Chidambaram says on behalf of Saimira,
"Since you have no intention of starting the project Marmayogi,
there is no point in keeping the advance money Rs.10.90 cr with
you. So please return the amount immediately and avoid the court
