Dhanush and KR in salary row
By Behindwoods News Bureau.
March 19, 2007
Parattai Engira Azhagusundaram is wrapped up and all set to hit the screens in the month of April. However, owing to salary issues, Dhanush and the producer are locking horns, which is likely to delay the movie's visit to the theatres. Dhanush recently lodged a complaint
in the Nadigar Sangam seeking for settlement of Rs. 85 lakh due for him in the name of pending salary from producer KR. However, KR has a different story to relate. "I bought the Tamil rights of the Kannada hit Jogi in December 2005. Banking on Dhanush's market, I bought the movie for a huge price. But right after, Dhanush delivered two flops Adhu Oru Kanakkalam and Pudupettai," he reveals. KR states that he did not want to back off from the project however and decided to go ahead with Dhanush. He agreed to pay 1 crore to the actor.

"Out of the crore, I have settled him 88 lakhs and only 12 lakhs need to be settled. It is surprising to me that Dhanush has approached the Nadigar Sangam for a settlement of Rs. 85 lakh," KR expresses his shock. On the other hand, KR has no complaints about the actor when he was associated with the movie. "He extended his full co-operation during the shoots and have not in a single instance discussed anything about the salary issue," he adds.

"Besides, I sacrificed his call sheets, which were booked for the month of June 2006 for his Thiruvilayadal. If my movie was started in that period, I would have released it by December," says KR. "I am in the industry for 20 years now and this sort of incident is total unseen in my career. I suspect Dhanush's father Kasturiraja behind this confusion," concerns KR.

Parattai is slated for an April release and if the salary issue is not settled by then, the movie will have to wait till the release of the grand release of the year Sivaji.
