In a move that many have been seeing coming for a while now, Kunchacko Boban is suing the producers of the movie Romans, Ajay Ghosh and Bijoy Chandran, claiming that he has not been fully paid for his work in the movie yet.
Kunchacko had issues working with the producers while the movie was being made itself and had openly admitted to that in an interview show then, adding that he had no intention of ever working with them again.
Apparently most of the payment had come through but a cheque for Rs 4.5 lacs had bounced and Kunchacko had, as a warning, sent them a legal notice to pay up. But this does not seem to have phased the producers who refused to cough up the rest of the cash due and this is what has led to the actor now filing a fully fledged petition against them in the Ernakulam Chief Judicial Magistrate Court.
Romans, the movie, had trouble written all over it from the get go as when it came out, several religious groups had protested that the movie made fun of certain faiths and priesthood etc. But despite this the fans seemingly loved the comedy flick and the movie turned out to be a huge success commercially.
The film starred Kunchacko Boban and Biju Menon in the lead, while the very able supporting cast included Lalu Alex, Vijayaraghavan, Kochu Preman and TG Ravi among others. Niveda Thomas played the lead female role.
It was directed by Boban Samuel.
Let us see how things turn out with this one, though smart money is on Kunchacko at this point..
