'Kalaippuli' S Thanu, a leading producer in the Tamil film industry and president of the Tamil Film Producers Council, has landed in trouble. Thanu had recently produced back to back blockbusters "Theri" and "Kabali".
A City Civil Court has now ordered the arrest of the producer on charges of cheating a theatre owner named David to the tune of Rs 2 lakh.
David, a theater owner from Kanykumari, had filed the case against Thanu for a loss that the former had incurred in screening the 2009 film "Thirumagan", starring SJ Suriya, following which the court had ordered Thanu to settle the amount with interest in the year 2013.
As Thanu did not pay the amount, David approached the court again, seeking directions to recover the amount with interest. The court on Tuesday ordered the police to arrest Thanu and produce him in court before 28th November 2016 for not following court orders.
