Surya and Karthi dragged to the court
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
August 20, 2007
The tiff between the Sivakumars and producer Ameer has reached its pinnacle with the producer filing a petition in the High Court seeking the payment of the amount he spent for Paruthiveeran. Those named in the petition include Sivakumar, Surya, Karthi, producer Ganavel (a relative of Sivakumar), the Producers’ Council, and Prasad Lab.

According to Ameer he started Paruthiveeran project when Sivakumar requested him for a story to introduce his youngest son Karthi to the film industry. Reportedly, he also introduced Gnanavel as the producer of the movie. Everything was going on smoothly until producer Gnanavel incurred losses, as one of his production ventures, Sillunu Oru Kadhal, with Surya and Jyothika in the lead roles turned out to be a huge flop.

That was when Ameer took the Paruthiveeran’s reins into his own hands for which the producer also consented. It is to be noted that the censor certificate was also released in Ameer’s name. While the movie was in the final stages, Ameer also could not find sources to fund the project as a result it landed in Gnanvel’s camp once again.

The trouble started when Gnanavel did not pay the amount Ameer spent for the movie. Repeated requests also did not heed results – even the producers’ council’s intervention. As a final resort he has moved the courts as Paruthiveeran’s rights for Telugu and Kannada remake are being negotiated. He has also sought a stay on television rights and dubbing rights without his consent.

Justice Prabha Sridevan has ordered all those mentioned in the petition to reply by 22nd August, 2007.
