'Alex Pandian' shoot interrupted, alleges Gnanavel RajaMar 15, 2012 PGV
Director Suraaj's 'Alex Pandian' starring Karthi and Anushka is caught in a war of nerves. Two days ago, the shooting of the film near Meenambakkam was allegedly interrupted. Lightmen who were supposed to come to the sets around 7 a.m. came very late. Their late arrival created problems for the film unit and the shooting was interrupted. On hearing this, representatives of the Tamil Film Producers Council visited the spot. Producer Gnanavel Raja told mediapersons that he and director/actor Ameer were fighting a legal battle over money matters with regard to 'Paruthiveeran' and that he had been under pressure to have the matter sorted out through talks. He had also received indirect threats, he alleged. Now problems were created to disrupt the shooting of 'Alex Pandian', Raja said.
When contacted, Ameer told reporters that he did not know why lightmen had gone to the shooting spot late. Ganavel Raja was unnecessarily dragging his (Ameer's) into it. The last and final round of talks on wage rise for directors, lightmen and technicians was scheduled for March 14. Turning the table against Gnanavel Raja, Ameer said it seemed a deliberate attempt to malign him and prevent him (Ameer) from participating in the talks. Whatever the hurdles he would attend the talks, Ameer said.. Click the Movie button below for more info:
