Producer Aascar Ravichandran recently claimed that he had the complete rights to the Anniyan and director Shankar should not proceed with the Hindi remake with Ranveer Singh. He even warned Shankar of taking legal actions when needed.
Now, Shankar gave Ravichandran a strong reply by releasing an open letter to give his version. He stated that the story, screenplay and direction of ‘Anniyan’ were on his name and not late Sri Sujatha who Ravichandran claims to be with. He said that Sujatha only worked on the dialogues and it is his own story thereby claiming that he can do whatever he wants with it.
He added that Ravichandran gained substantially in the form of huge collections through his work. Shankar even asked to stop such avaricious and illegal claims to needlessly attempt to jeopardize his future projects.
