Actor Karthi’s forthcoming flick ‘Alex Pandian’ Shooting got cancelled today in Meenambakkam, Chennai due to FEFSI workers non-cooperation. The movie team is blaming that director Ameer has halted the shooting, since he was angry that Studio Green has released his Paruthiveeran(Karthi’s debut flick) in Telugu without his knowledge and did not pay him any royalty.
Santhanam, director Suraj, director Keyar, Chitra Lakshmanan and others were present at the spot. Gnanavel had sought the Tamil film producers council’s help and 25 producers, including Sathyajothi Thyagarajan, Muralidharan, K.R., T. Siva and Thenappan, rushed to the spot to show their solidarity.
Producer Gnanvelraja(uncle of Karthi) said, “Director Ameer is the one who is behind the issue. While we have taken all the required permission to shoot yesterday (the second Sunday of the month), The crew, in the last minute, said they cannot come for the shooting since they have a Fefsi meeting. We found this to be a fake excuse as a couple of other shootings were on. Last week also a similar incident happened and the shoot got cancelled. Now I smell foul play by Ameer.
