Success sometimes comes with a price and it did for director Vikram Kumar. When he was waving his success flag with 13B and Ishq, just like any other producer, who eyes on successful directors, C Ashwini Dutt too approached the director and paid him some advance to come up with a movie for them.
Vikram, however took the money but didn’t pay heed to the request, instead he went on to direct films like Manam, 24, Hello. Well, it’s Ashwini’s money at stake, so the latter approached the Film Chambers and Directors council to file a complaint. Now the director is fined for this act and he is asked to pay nearly Rs 1.5 crore from the remuneration he is getting for his next film.
Although it is not in light on how much Ashwini Dutt paid him advance at the first place but Vikram has to abide by the council and pay 1.5cr to Ashwini Dutt’s Vyjayanthi Movies. Vikram is apparently directing Nani next, which will go on floors coming year.
