The rift between Kool producer Shilpa Ganesh and director Mussanje Mahesh seems to be not going to end very soon. According to sources, the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) had a discussions with both the parties and KFCC president Basanth Kumar Patil had come out with a solution to it. But Mahesh is reportedly not happy with the decision and is yet to accept it.
The KFCC had discussion over the issue with both Mahesh and Shilpa at meeting held on Saturday evening, but it had postponed the hearing of decision onto Wednesday stating that it needed a more time to examine the evidences and statements made by both the parties. It had another meeting at the KFCC office yesterday (Wednesday, August 04) and announced its decision.
Sources claim that after listening from both the director and producer, the KFCC has suggested producer Shilpa Ganesh to give Rs. 1 lac to Mussanje Mahesh, who has already been given an advance of Rs.1 lac, for the work he has done before the launch of the film Kool. It has also allowed Golden star Ganesh to direct the movie.
However, Shilpa Ganesh is said to be very happy with verdict of the KFCC and she is planning to shoot the movie Kool in Bangalore very soon. But Mussanje Mahesh is very upset with this decision of the KFCC and he is said to be not accepting it. Meanwhile, the Kannada Film Directors' Association (Kanfida) is said to be thinking about the future course of action.
