It all started after Vishal borrowed Rs. 21.29 crore from financier cum movie producer Anbu Chezhiyan to make a movie. Lyca intervened and agreed to pay the money under the condition of getting the rights of Vishal’s upcoming movies but the actor failed to honour the agreement as a result of which Lyca approached court.
“Since the actor borrowed money from financier Anbu Chezhiyan, we agreed to pay the loan on the condition that Vishal should assign the rights to the movies produced by his production house. When Vishal intended to release his “Veerame Vaagai Soodum”, he didn’t give us the rights of theatre or OTT. Hence, we approached the court” Lyca submitted through it’s counsel.
