Pyramid Saimira, one of the popular corporate film producers in Kollywood has sent a legal notice to Kamal Hassan and asked him to return the advance amount Rs.10.90 crores that was given for Marmayogi.
Few months ago, both Kamal and Saimira had entered an agreement to produce Marmayogi as a joint venture with the investment of Rs.100 crores. Saimira paid a whopping Rs. 10.90 crores to Kamal as advance. But due to some financial crisis, the company has postponed the venture, but not dropped it.
Meanwhile Kamal has started his new film Unnaipol Oruvan under his own banner, Rajkamal International. Now he is busy in releasing the film on September 18th worldwide.
At this juncture, Pyramid Saimira, the company under reconciliation process after continuous losses in film production, has sent a legal notice to Kamal Hassan to return the advance amount immediately after receiving the notice.
In that notice Advocate Chidambaram says on behalf of Saimira, "Since you have no intention of starting the project Marmayogi, there is no point in keeping the advance money Rs.10.90 cr with you. So please return the amount immediately and avoid the court procedures...".
