Ranveer Singh recently made headlines when he was confirmed for the Bollywood remake of Tamil film, ‘Anniyan.’ The movie will be directed by Shankar and financed by Jayantilal. However, the movie is set to land in legal trouble as producer Aascar Ravichandran is set to move to court against the production by claiming that he owns the copyright of ‘Anniyan,’ and that the movie cannot have a remake without his consent.
Ravichandran said to the media, “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.” Although Shankar had dismissed the claim, Ravichandran stated that he had hired Shankar to direct the film, reports Pinkvilla. “He can say and claim anything, but everyone knows that ‘Anniyan’ is my movie and I hired him to direct the film,” he added.
Ravichandran, who has also filed a complaint against Shankar with the South Indian Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC), claimed that the body is supporting him in the dispute. He said, “SIFCC, which has been supporting me, told me to wait a little longer as they have spoken to the film association in Mumbai. But it is not Shankar who is the producer of the film but Gadaji with whom I need to have a discussion about the project.”
