Renowned filmmaker Shankar had recently announced a Hindi remake of the iconic psychological drama, Anniyan, with Ranveer Singh getting in the shoes of Vikram. While the fans of the movie and the team have been extremely excited about the remake announcement, the movie has attracted a legal soup even before getting on the floors.

The producer of the 2005-release Tamil-language psychological action thriller film, V Ravichandran, has called out the filmmaker Shankar for announcing the Hindi remake without his consent. The producer allegedly owns the rights of the story and rendered the remake without his permission illegal. The producer has sent a letter to Shankar questioning his ethics and accusing him of an unprofessional and unethical act.

“I am utterly shocked to know, that, you are likely to undertake the Direction of a Hindi film by adopting the story of the movie Anniyan. You are well aware that I am the Producer of the said movie Anniyan. The entire story rights was purchased by me from the writer Sujatha (alias late Rangarajan) for which the payments were done by me to him and necessary records are also available. I am the whole and sole owner of the rights of the storyline,” the letter read.

“You are advised to immediately stop proceeding any further on the same, due to the illegal copying of the story line for which the entire rights are held by me. Please note that a legal notice follows this letter,” concluded V Ravichandran in his letter to Shankar.
