Recently, actor Vijay found himself drowning with issues pertaining
to the compensations of film distributors and even before he could
get out of that, another matter threw him into troubled waters
Johnny Thomas who hails from West Mambalam has filed a petition
in the Saidapet Court. He states in the petition, “I had produced
the Malayalam film Bodyguard in 2008 and J K Siddique has
to directed this film. He was paid Rs 40 Lakhs as remuneration. The
film did well at the box office."
"While drawing up the agreement there was a condition
stipulating that the director should complete the film in 45 days.
But the director completed the film in 120 days which resulted in
additional expense for me. Now without my knowledge he is producing
this film in Tamil with the title Kavalkaran which has
Vijay in the lead role. He has no right to remake this film without
my permission." He added.
He said " In view of the foregoing, I requested the Court to
direct the police to register a case against him. The 11th Court
Magistrate who enquired about the petition, directed the police to
look into the matter and submit a report."
