Karikalan, starring actor Vikram, is in troubled waters once again. Reports suggest us that the producers of the movie are keen to fire the director Kannan out of the project, as they are not happy with the way the film is shaping up. For your information, director Kannan has canned already twenty five percent of the movie’s shooting. When enquired, there seems to be confusion, as different sides reveal different stories regarding the reports.
A source close to the movie tells us that the producers of the movie are not happy with the film’s scenes canned so far. The source further adds that the producers are willing to replace director Kannan with A R Gandhi Krishna, who is the original script writer of Karikalan according to a few reports.
When the media contacted A R Gandhi Krishna, who has already directed Aanandha Thaandavam, he revealed that the producers of Karikalan are in talks with him regarding the direction of the movie. He further added that, if Vikram’s dates are available, he is ready to take up the project anytime.
However, the current director of the movie, Kannan, has a different story to tell us. He says that all is well with the movie Karikalan. He adds that twenty five percent of shooting of the movie is complete. He further confirms that he is going to direct the rest of the movie, and calls the reports of his replacement as the director baseless. He tells us that if Vikram gets free from his current projects, the shooting of Karikalan will resume.
To clarify all the confusions revolving around the Karikalan, we contacted one of the movie’s producers S S Vasan. He confirmed that Kannan is the director of the movie and would be the part of the project always. However, he added that they have replaced cinematographer Karthik with Rathnavelu for the project. He further said that there would be a few more changes in the technical crew of the movie.
Let us see when Karikalan gears up for a release!
