Aascar Ravichandran, the producer of the Tamil film Anniyan (2005), moves in court against filmmaker Shankar and producer Jayantilal Gada. The latter is working on the Hindi remake of the film starring Ranveer Singh in the title role. According to a tabloid, Ravichandran has already filed a complaint against Shankar with the South India Film Chamber of Commerce (SIFCC).
The producer said he will go to court against Shankar and Jayantilal Gada. He said they can go ahead and make a movie without his consent as he owns the copyright to the movie. He said he is the author of the film.
In April 2021, Shankar had responded to the copyright allegations by stating: “In this context, I submit that the film was released in 2005 and everyone associated with the film knew that the script and story belong exclusively to me. to me and in fact the film was released with the tag: Shankar’s Story, Script and Direction. I have not assigned any script or script to any person in writing, and I continue to retain the right to exploit the script in any way I see fit As an admitted author of the literary work, my rights cannot be interfered with under any circumstances. “
Responding to the same, Ravichandran said that Shankar can say and claim anything, but everyone knows that Anniyan it’s his movie and he hired Shankar to direct the project. Ravichandran will present a case in Madras High Court. He said SIFCC is supporting him and has told him to wait a bit longer since they spoke to the film association in Mumbai. He said he needs to speak to Jayantilal Gada, who is the producer of the Hindi remake.
“Since the script belongs to me, I have every right to exploit it in any way I see fit. In fact, you / your entity do not have the right to redo or make any derivative rights of “Anniyan”, since such rights have not been granted to you in writing. In the absence of a written assignment on my part, there can be no basis for even claiming that the “story” concerns you. You, as a producer, have benefited substantially from the success of the movie “Anniyan”, and are unnecessarily trying to unfairly enrich yourself even in my future endeavors that have no correlation with you. Needless to say, after this clarification, I can only hope that common sense will prevail over you and that you will stop waving such unsubstantiated claims. This answer is given without prejudice and to clarify the real situation in which I, as a director and writer, am subject to such greedy and illegal claims to unnecessarily try to jeopardize my future projects, ”Shankar had previously said about the project and the Copyright.
