Ace director Mani Ratnam has lodged a police complaint after his office in Kesava Perumal Kovil Street at Mylapore received a bomb threat asking the filmmaker to remove certain dialogue from his latest movie Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
The police were immediately informed and a team of bomb detection and disposal squad conducted a thorough search in the office and declared it a hoax threat call.
The threat call which was made on Monday night reportedly demanded to remove some ‘controversial’ dialogues from the ace director’s latest release, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam.
