In two setbacks to Kamal Haasan, while a police complaint has been filed against him, a plea has been registered in the court to stop the release of his upcoming film Vishwaroopam 2.
A complaint has been lodged against Kamal Haasan and his show Bigg Boss 2 for portraying former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu J Jayalalithaa as a dictator.
The complainant alleged that Kamal Haasan tried to defame the former CM during his reality show. The complainant reportedly states that, while performing a particular task, Kamal said, “You know what happened to the dictators that ruled the state”.
Meanwhile, Pyramid Saimira Productions, represented by its director P S Swaminathan, has approached the Madras High Court to restrain the release of Kamal Haasan starrer Vishwaroopam 2.
The production company claimed that the actor owed it Rs 7.75 crore and the money could not be collected from him if the movie was allowed to be released.
According to the petitioner, they had signed a memorandum of understanding with Rajkamal Films on April 2, 2008 for the production of Marmayogi at an estimated budget of Rs 100 crore.
Subsequently, an amount of Rs 10.90 crore was paid to Rajkamal Films in two instalments towards the remuneration of Haasan for acting, directing and writing the story, screenplay and dialogue of the film.
