Producer Anjaneyulu and director Veera seem to have the knives out for Malavika after she jumped ship from the big budget movie Karthigai. It was good news, however, for Priyanka Kothari who picked up the role and we covered her story yesterday.
But is it really a case of Malavika being unprofessional? She claims that the management team were against her working during her pregnancy to complete the picture and made her feel embarrassed by including difficult dance steps that she couldn’t handle. She also alleges the serious charge of sexual harassment on their part.
The producers claim, however, that they had met all Malavika’s pre-conditions for her return to the set and were astonished at the ill treatment they have received from her. Both sides are claiming damages against each other.
