    Hori producer cheated by director Pandu?


    Vinod Prabhakar starrer Kannada movie Hori is facing trouble after its producer Lingegowda refused to invest more money on it. The movie, which is directed by Pandu has two heroines and Ramanithu Chaudhary and Gowri Munjal have played the female leads.

    Producer Lingegowda, a real estate businessman from Bangalore, was introduced to Pandu by his friend Mahesh Ramswamy. Pandu is a pupil of Tiger Prabhakar and Lingegowda is his fan. Both decided to make the movie Hori and roped in Vinod Prabhakar for the hero role.

    Pandu promised Lingegowda to complete the movie Hori with the budget Rs. 1.60 crore. Now, the movie has been shot for 30 days in Rockline Studios and Kaushik Studios. So far the movie has completed 50% of the shooting with the amount of Rs. 1.80 crore. The director is asking more money to complete the movie.

    When the producers asked for the accounts, Pandu suggested him to contact the production manager Vajreshwari Mallikarjun. But he said that he did not know anything about the accounts. Then the producer requested Jaggesh to mediate and solve the problem. The actor brought a compromise between them and made them complete the movie.

    Meanwhile, the director announced in a press meet that the movie Hori was made with Rs. 3.50 crores. When the producer asked about this after the press meet, Pandu said that it would be good, quality movie if gives extra amount. Now, the producer has gathered Rs. 1 crore for the shooting of rest of the movie.

    However, Hori is a remake of Malayalam movie Meese Madhavan. Earlier Director Pandu tried to rope in comedy actor Jaggesh, but he could not get his call sheets. Four months ago, the movie started shooting at Kanteerava Studio.
