the projects under production or proposed
by him are in danger of being boycotted.
Most notable is of course, Dasavatharam,
with Kamal in the lead and directed by
KS Ravikumar. Kamal, keeping the gravity
of the situation in mind, asked Ravichandran
to sort out the problems with the councils.
But, clever Ravichandran did not want
to let go of a chance of producing a Kamal
film and instead floated a new production
house called R Pictures with his brother
Ramesh Babu as head. He has announced
that Dasavatharam would be produced by
this new outfit. Meanwhile, he has also
launched another film, ‘Next Ladies
College 5 Km.’ This film would be
the maiden venture for R Pictures. Call
it business savvy or petty ego, Ravichandran
does know how to navigate the industry.
