CHENNAI: An entertainment company has issued a legal notice to Rajkamal Films International and actor Kamal Hasan seeking return with interest of Rs. 10.90 crore which had been paid pursuant to a MoU in respect of a joint venture project of Tamil picture “Marmayogi.”
In his notice, counsel A. Chidambaram said his client Pyramid Saimira Production International Ltd., had entered into the MoU for the project at an estimated budget of Rs. 100 crore. The notice said it was unfortunate that though Rs. 10.90 crore had been received by Rajkamal Films and the actor, they had failed either to confirm the crew or started producing “Marmayogi”.
Besides not refunding the amount with 24% interest, the two had started own production of Tamil and Telugu versions of “Unnaipol Oruvan” by diverting the funds received from Pyramid Saimira Production.
