NRI director Priya Bharathi has filed a case against Kannada actor Diganth at Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce and she has requested to take strict action against him. Priya Bharathi has blamed that Diganth has delayed her movie E Preeti for a year by not attending the shooting.
Diganth had signed to star in E Preeti a year agor. Now, he is delaying the shooting of the movie with the pretext of unavailability of dates. The movie was to be shot in US for two weeks for which she had booked an air ticket. But she had to cancel the ticket, because he did not attend the shooting at the right time.
Priya Bharathi has been struggling to take Diganth to Us for shooting for a year. Now she has come to Bangalore. The movie E Preeti was to be shot for two weeks in February 2009. But he is delaying the shooting of the movie with pretexts, she has stated in her complaint.
Although Diganth has promised now to come to US on July 14, Priya Bharathi strongly believes that this time also, he will skip his US tour. His mobile phone is switched off and he is not available for talk to confirm the issue.
However, Priya Bharathi is a very familiar face in Kannada film industry. Earlier, she has directed a movie called Guttu for small screen in 2001. Another speciality of Priya is that she was one, who introduced today"s Golden star Ganesh to film industry.
