Randamoozham in trouble as MT Vasudevan Nair proceeds with the case!
The future of Randamoozham’s movie adaptation looks bleak as MT Vasudevan Nair has decided to proceed with the case. Kozhikode Munsif court will be hearing the case today. As we already know, Randamoozham, one of MT’s classic works, was supposed to be made as a movie with superstar Mohanlal in the lead. UAE based businessman, BR Shetty had announced that he will investing Rs 1000 crores on the movie. With the huge budget involved, the announcement had caught nationwide attention. But the project is in trouble currently with MT seeking his script back.
Earlier this month, the legendary writer had approached the court informing that he was backing out of the project. Apparently, MT is unhappy with the delay in the project materializing. He approached the court to get back his script as the contract period got over. VA Shrikumar Menon, who was supposed to direct the movie, had recently posted in his Facebook page that the project will definitely happen as talks are on with MT. However, it is now learnt that the writer has not been convinced. Talking to medias, MT confirmed that he is moving forward legally and is willing to return back the money that he got as advance.
Shrikumar Menon and his team have been working on the project for nearly three years now. Last month, the director along with producer BR Shetty were in Chicago to meet some technicians and discuss about the project. He had then informed that the movie would go on floors by mid 2019. But as of now, things are not in their favour.
