The creative and talented director Shankar who is known for making 2.0 and I, has landed in a legal soup a day after he announced Hindi adaptation of his 2005 hit film Anniyan  in which Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh will play the lead role. Today the  Producer V Ravichandran of Ascar Films who originally produced, has sent a legal notice along with a scathing letter, accusing Shankar of indulging in  the unlawful acts.

  It is known news that yesterday, Ranveer Singh took to his microblogging page and made official announcement  regarding his project with Shankar, which was a remake of  Shankar’ Anniyan, starring  Chiyaan Vikram and Sadha in the lead roles.  Today  the producer Aascar V Ravichandran has sent a letter and a legal notice to  director Shankar and the Bollywood production house, citing violation of copyright and asking them to stop work on this remake. Aascar V Ravichandran  is claiming that he bought the full rights of the story from Tamil writer Sujatha.

  Ravichandran also said that he had helped Shankar regain his lost ground after the debacle of Boys  which was released in 2003,  and the producer asked him to stop work on the new project.  Ravichandran claimed that he is the  and sole owner of the rights.
