Actor Sivakarthikeyan filed case against producer KG Gnanavel Raja of Studio Greens claiming that an amount of Rs. 4 crore of his salary for acting in the movie “Mr.Local” is pending. The actor approached the court to prevent Gnanavel Raja from distributing the films of Simbu and Vikram before paying him his salary.
Mr. Local released in the year 2019 and the actor paired up with actress Nayanthara in the film with actors such as Sathish, Radhika leading the supporting cast. Directed by “SMS” fame M. Rajesh, the film didn’t do well in the box office as expected. The project which was bankrolled by Gnanavel Raja, marked the second collaboration between Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara after “Velaikaran”.
Now, the actor has approached the court claiming that Gnanavel Raja failed to pay him his full salary for acting in the film. Siva said that the film producer committed him for the project for Rs. 15 crore and has paid only Rs. 11 crore so far. The petition of the actor has also asked the court to direct the film producer to pay the TDS tax for the amount he was paid.
