Director Mysskin hit out at Vishal over the ‘Thupparivalan 2’ row, while speaking at the promotional event for ZEE5’s upcoming web series ‘Kannamoochi’ in Chennai on Thursday.
It is to be noted that Mysskin, after a tiff with Vishal, walked out of ‘Thupparivalan 2’ following which Vishal, who is already the protagonist and producer of the movie, decided to wear the director’s hat too. Vishal made a string of allegations against Mysskin, and said that the director put unrealistic conditions and spent lakhs of rupees unnecessarily.
Speaking at ‘Kannamoochi’ event, Mysskin said that ‘Thupparivaalan 2’ revolves around Kohinoor diamond and that he worked on the script for nearly a year. He said that he wrote the movie to help Vishal overcome his debt problem.
“I already had a producer who was ready to fund the movie. He had even given me an advance. But, Vishal himself insisted on producing it,” the ‘Psycho’ maker said.
He added: “I even told him that I can write a different story that happens within Chennai and we can shoot on a budget of Rs 10 crore. That can be ‘Thupparivaalan 2’, and we can make this movie as ‘Thupparivaalan 3’ later. But, he wanted to make this movie.”
Urging Vishal provide proof to support his allegations against him, Mysskin said, “He claimed that I spent about Rs 35 lakh for script work. I have the proof to show that I only spent Rs 7 lakh of 7.5 lakh that was given to me.”
Mysskin said Vishal had used foul language at him. “Vishal, the worst is yet to come to you. You can’t sleep at night from now on. If you think you are being righteous, let’s go to war,” he said.
