Reports say that Singanamala Ramesh's arrest has not affected Rajapattai and the shooting is progressing as scheduled. Director Susindran is planning to finish the filming in single phase, adds report. It is also said that the Telugu producer had anticipated this and hence he made his sons as the producers of the film.
Last Friday, Singanamala Ramesh, who has been evading arrest for a few months, was arrested at the Chennai Airport on charges of threatening to kill a film financier. Telugu film financier named Jayanth Reddy had lodged a complaint against the producer and Bhanu, the alleged killer of Maddelacheruvu Suri (the character played by Surya in Rakta Charitra), for blackmailing and threatening him in February 2011.
The controversial producer has also been accused of cheating Shalimar Videos over Telugu movie Komaram Puli video rights and he is also wanted in Maddelacheruvu Suri's murder case.
Soon after the arrest of producer Singanamala Ramesh, Vikram's Rajapattai reportedly landed in trouble, as the movie is produced by the producer's sons Prathish and Santhosh. But sources have now cleared that the movie has not been halted and the shooting of the film is in progress in Chennai.
