Director Shankar has mastered filmmaking since his debut Gentleman which became a blockbuster at box office and earned positive reviews. The ace director has casted the most talented and popular Kollywood actors such as Rajnikanth, Vijay, Vikram etc,.
Shankar and Karthik Subbaraj issue:
Recently Shankar and Karthick Subbaraj have faced allegations regarding story theft for their upcoming pan Indian drama RC15. Shankar was busy on numerous projects at the time so he asked for Karthik’s help to come up with a story for his next film featuring Ram Charan as the lead actor.
However, latest reports say that Sellamuthu, a former associate of director Karthik Subbaraj, lodged a complaint to the South Indian Film Writers’ Association claiming the story of the film to be his own.
Produced by Sri Venkateshwara Cine Creations, RC15 (which is still a tentative title for the movie) is supposedly made on a massive budget and is likely to cast Bollywood actress Kiara Advani alongside Ram Charan. The rest of the cast and crew hasn’t yet been confirmed but there are rumours that the script has already been penned down by the directors. Reports suggest that the shoot of the film will begin in the month of August.
Let’s hope the directors accused of story theft successfully overcome the roadblock soon and the controversy is resolved. The fans cannot wait for another outstanding movie helmed by the leading directors of the Kollywood industry.
