Kamal Haasan, who has geared up for the shooting of his next film, Indian 2, has hit headlines yet again for all the wrong reasons. According to media reports, the Tamil star has been accused of not repaying Rs 10 crore to a producer. KE Gnanavel Raja, the producer has filed a complaint against the actor with the Tamil Nadu Film Producers’ Council (TFPC) over the same issue. Reportedly, Kamal Haasan had borrowed Rs 10 crore from Gnanavel Raja during the release of Uttama Villain; however, he did not return the money on time.
Kamal Haasan had promised the producer to repay the entire amount and also committed to do a film under KE Gnanavel Raja’s banner. Reportedly, till date, Kamal Haasan hasn’t lived up to his promise and has neither paid back Rs 10 crore. Haasan had borrowed a huge amount during the release of director Ramesh Aravind’s Uttama Villain. Since the Tamil star faced financial crunch during the film’s release, he decided to borrow money. In his complaint, Gnanavel Raja revealed that as Kamal Haasan showed no interest in signing a new film with him, he decided to approach TFPC.
Uttama Villain starring Kamal Haasan in the lead released in 2015 after a lot of disputes between producers and financers. The film received outstanding reviews from critics.
Meanwhile, after wrapping up the Chennai schedule of the film, Kamal Haasan has now moved on to Rajamundry in Andhra Pradesh for the shooting of Indian 2. Kamal Haasan is shooting for the film in Rajamundry Central jail.
