Inside Kollywood many a times it happens that actors sign a film, take an advance and then delay giving dates. This drama has been a nightmare to most of the producers.Incase the actors later decides not to do a particular film getting the already paid advance back is nothing less than an ordeal for the producers.
But Kathiresan who produced ‘Pollathavan’ was not the one, who took it go. After ‘Pollathavan’ Kathiresan signed Shriya for a film and paid her an advance of ten lakhs. But Shriya was not in the position to do the film and so delayed giving dates. Kathiresan waited for long to get atleast the advance money back from Shriya. After much struggle he took his case to Producers Council. Then after hearing both sides Shriya was asked to pay the advance of 10 lakhs along with a fine of 5 lakhs to the producer.
As both the Producers Council and Actors Council were involved in the decision the case ended with out much fuss.
