Producer Oscar Ravichandiran had withdrawn his complaint against actor Surya yesterday after an explanation given by the actor. The producer said that he is satisfied with Surya's reply and has decided to settle the issue amicably out of the council 'Panchayat'.
Earlier, Ravichandiran had complaint to Producers' Council alleging that Surya has meted step-motherly treatment to his project Vaaranam Aayiram and took up Hari's Vel, which was started after his film. The Council then announced for an inquiry into the matter on Monday evening. However, Surya gave an explanation to the issue and conveyed positive signals to the producer. He said that he is keen on taking up Vaaranam Aayiram. He added that he decided to complete Vel first only after getting approval of the director of Vaaranam Aayiram.
In the mean time, Oscar Ravichandiran and Surya discussed about the situation yesterday and decided to settle the issue amicably. It is said that director Gautham Menon also asked the producer to withdraw the complaint from the council. Yesterday evening, Oscar Ravichandiran gave another letter to the council about his withdrawal of his complaint against Surya.
When we contacted the producer for further clarifications on the issue, he said, "A few misunderstanding between the actor and me has led to this bitter developments. Now, Surya has cleared his stand. We are planning to shoot the film with alternative dates given by the actor. It is true that Surya is very eager to complete our project also."
