We are talking about “Pizza” movie and its director Karthik Subbaraj. Recently this director made “Jigarthanda” with hero Siddarth and the film is a smashing hit. However, the producer has cheated this young director of giving him 40% share in the revenue generated through selling of remake rights.
This director and his producer S Kathiresan failed to settle the issue amicably outside, so Karthik approached court now. Following which, this order has been passed. “Madras High Court on 21st May 2015 stayed the remake of multi-crore blockbuster hit Tamil film Jigarthanda directed and written by Director Karthik Subbaraj and starring Siddarth and Lakshmi Menon.
The stay has been granted until 11th June 2015 on a petition by Karthik Subbaraj alleging violation of agreement and copyright infringement by the producer Five Star Films pvt. Ltd.”
