Going by the latest reports in the film industry, the Producer of Anniyan (Aparichithudu in Telugu), Aascar Films owner Ravichandran threatened legal action against director Shankar over the Hindi remake of the film with Ranveer Singh.
The producer wrote an open letter to director Shankar, saying that he is the “sole owner of the rights of storyline”, which he has purchased from writer Sujatha who is no more now. In his open letter, producer Ravichandran wrote, “I am utterly shocked to know that you are likely to undertake the direction of a Hindi film by adopting the story of the movie Anniyan. You are well aware that I am the producer of the movie.
The entire story right was purchased by me from writer Sujatha for which full payment was done. I am the whole and sole owner of the rights. Any adaptation or remaking or copying the main plot is totally illegal.” Shankar is yet to respond to this issue and we have to wait what he has to say about!
