Complaint Against Mani ratnam
Mani ratnam’s Kadali is not out of controversies. According to the latest news is that Mannan films filed a complaint against Mani Ratnam today because they have suffered a 16crore loss by releasing Kadali. . All those started agitating in front of Maniratnam’s house and to escape from them Mani flew to Kodaikanal. However, citing some technical snag, Maniratnam’s manager Krishna told me that he wouldn’t be able to arrange for the screening.
He then assured me that I could go ahead and acquire the film’s distribution keeping in view Maniratnam’s stature in the industry and his past record. I then took up the rights for Rs.20 crores. I could earn only Rs.3 crores as theatrical collections which means I suffered losses to the tune of Rs.17 crores.Mean time it is said that Mani Ratnam is in Kodaikanal and they have already issued a press release stated that “Madras Talkies was not responsible for the Kadal losses as they have already sold it to GFC”.
