Trouble is brewing between producers of two Karthi films R Ravindran of Dream Valley Corporation, the producer of Aayirathil Oruvan and N.Lingusami of Tirupathi Brothers producer and director of Paiyaa.
The bone of contention between the Karthi producers is which of the two films will release for Pongal 2010. Ravindran says he stood first in the queue, as he had signed up the hero after the release of Paruthiveeran, while Lingusamy too has a valid point. His Paiyaa shoot and post production work is almost over, and he is ready for a Pongal release.
Meanwhile Ravindran is fighting his own battles with his director Selvaraghavan, who he feels left the project when the graphic work was going on and flew to Ladakh to shoot his new film with Vikram.
The latest we hear is that a settlement will be reached by the end of the week. As per the deal being thrashed out, Ravindran will be given one last chance to release his Aayirathil Oruvan for Pongal and Paiyaa will follow a few weeks later.
The bottom line is - We will get to see a Karthi film this Pongal!
