Aascar Ravichandran, producer of the Tamil film ‘Anniyan’ (2005) is moving court against director Shankar and producer Jayantilal Gada over the remake of the film. Ravichandran has already filed a complaint against Shankar with the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC) and claims that the body is going to support him. Speaking to ETimes, Ravichandran said, “I am going to court against Shankar and Jayantilal Gada. They cannot make the film without my consent as I own the copyright of the film and no other person has the right over it as I am the author of the movie.”
But Shankar had responded to the producer’s complaint stating that ‘Anniyan’ was his script and everybody knows about it.
Ravichandran who produced ‘Anniyan’ with South superstar Vikram got to know about the remake of his own film, after it was announced on social media.
