Anbe Sivam, that Kamal Hassan- Madhavan starrer which got a lot of critical acclaim has been dubbed into Hindi as Shivam. The film will be released a week after Mumbai Xpress.
Both Kamal and Maddy who speak fluently in Hindi are furious that somebody else have dubbed for them. Someone is trying to cash in on their popularity by dubbing the film and publicizing it as their comeback film in Hindi!
Lakshmi Movie Makers, the original Tamil producers have washed their hands off, saying that they had sold the dubbing rights of the film at a throw away price to a middleman in Mumbai and they can do little about the issue. Now even if Shivam does not have a decent run in theatres, the satellite rights can be sold at a high price!
