Reports say that Rama Narayanan, the Guinness World Record holder for directing the maximum number of films (numbering over 100 as on date) and the former president of the Tamil Film Producers’ Council (TFPC), might face arrest in a case of money fraud filed against him by some film produces with the city commissioner of police.
Immediately after the change of regime in the State in May this year, Rama Narayanan put in his papers as the president of the Council. An ardent supporter of Kalaignar, Narayanan obviously didn’t want to head the Council in the changed political scenario in the State. Those who complained against Narayanan are K.V. Gunasekaran of Goodwill Movies, Rajasimman of M.R. Movies and G. Babuganesh of Bala Vignesh Creations.
In the complaint, the trio has stated that Narayanan had assured that a plot of land would be given to all those in the film industry and collected Rs.2,500 from each of the members of the Council but he didn’t bother to acknowledge the receipt of the sum through a receipt. Repeated queries as to how far the scheme of allotting the plot of land had progressed didn’t evoke any response from Narayanan, the complaint further said.
They also said that Narayanan acted arbitrarily in hosting an event to facilitate Kalaignar and awarded the broadcasting rights to a regional channel he was close to, without consulting other members of the Council. They also added that he had also committed many fraudulent activities and resigned after the change of guard in the State and remains ‘absconding’.
The complaint concluded by saying that Narayanan and Council’s office-bearers such as Rafi, Guru and Murthy should be arrested for their criminal acts. It is expected that Narayanan might be arrested in the coming days.
