'Eradanesala' producer says director breached agreement

Kannada movie ‘Eradanesala’ has run into a controversy with the producer accusing the director of breach of agreement over the film’s promotion.

Producer Yogesh Narayan has filed a complaint before the Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce (KFCC) seeking action against director Guruprasad. The movie was released on March 3 and stars Dhanajaya and Sangeetha Bhat. “Guruprasad has stayed off promotional activities of the movie. He has not been responding to calls. He has breached  many conditions of the agreement including his presence in promotional activities. Hence, I have lodged a complaint with the KFCC,” the producer told DH. He said the deadline to complete the project was nine months, but Guruprasad took four years to complete it. “The movie is running to full houses and there are additional shows in multiplexes in Bengaluru on Sunday. Guruprasad’s absence in promotional activities may adversely hit the movie’s prospects,” he said.

KFCC president Sa Ra Govindu said he was yet to go through the complaint. “KFCC will hold a meeting and take action against Guruprasad if found guilty,” he said. Narayan said he would lodge a police complaint if KFCC fails to act against the director. Guruprasad said he would reply to charges against him on Monday.
