Director Ameer Sultan has lodged complaint against Studio Green and
Gemini Labs over Paruthiveeran royalty issue. The
filmmaker has alleged that they did not seek his permission to
release the dubbed version of the Tamil movie in Telugu.
It is learnt that Ameer, in his complaint, has said that
Gnanavel Raja owned Studio Green is releasing the Telugu version of
Paruthiveeran without getting his consent and it has not
paid the royalty, which is against the agreement. The director
wrote a letter to Gemini Labs recently saying that they should not
give the negatives and the rights to the production house.
Gemini Labs allowed the movie bosses to dub the movie in Telugu,
hence he has filed the complaint against them too. Ameer says that
he was the script writer and director of Paruthiveeran and
he deserves the royalty.
The Tamil version of Paruthiveeran starring Karthi and
Priyamani is expected to release on March 2.
