It has been reported that Linguswamy borrowed money from PVP, a few years back to produce a film named “Yenni Ezhu Naalukulla”. It was supposed to have Karthi and Samantha in the lead roles but the project didn’t take off. The company decided to take legal action against Linguswamy and his brother due to the non repayment of the loan amount.
The Cheque which was provided by the brothers returned due to insufficient balance in their bank account. The formalities to appeal in the court against the jail sentence has been initiated by the brothers, says reports. On the work front, Lingswamy who directed “The warrior” by having Ram Pothineni and Krithi Shetty in the lead roles recently, is expected to complete the shelved project of “Rangasthalam” Tamil remake which had Raghavaa Lawrece in the lead role.
