After a series of defamation cases that rocked Kollywood in the recent past, a producer named M Muthuraman has filed a police complaint against well known director Sundar C. Muthuraman had produced a horror film in 1978 titled Aayiram Jenmangal starring Rajinikanth, Vijayakumar and Latha in the lead.
According to his complaint that was written to the Chennai Police Commissioner, Muthuraman has alleged that the recently released film Aranmanai that was directed by Sundar C was based on his film Aayiram Jenmangal which was considered as a box office hit back then.
He has gone on to say that he had plans of remaking the 1978 movie in Hindi and Telugu but then Sundar C approached him with the plans of making Aranmanai. According to him, Sundar C had promised to pay him 50 lakh rupees and in addition to that would also share the profit Aranmanai makes from its Telugu and Kannada versions.
But even after the movie being declared a hit, Sundar C apparently had failed to keep up his promise and that's when Muthuraman has sought legal help to taste justice and to get his dues. An official reply from the Aranmanai director is expected soon.
Meanwhile, his latest venture Ambala featuring Vishal and Hansika in the lead has reached its post production stage and is expected to hit theatres for Pongal next year. The film also marks the debut of 'Hiphop Tamizha' Adhi as a music director and his song 'Pazhagikalaam' has already become a huge sensation among music lovers in India and also in foreign countries.
