Shruti Hassan banned by court from accepting any new films
Nirapad News : Kamal Haasan’s daughter, Shruti Haasan, has been barred by a Hyderabad court from accepting any offer to act in films before completing the shooting for a movie that she had already committed to.
The additional chief judge of a city civil court in Hyderabad gave the interim injunction following a complaint by Picture House Media with offices in Chennai and Hyderabad on Wednesday.
The interim order restrained the actor to honour all her obligations as agreed in the artist agreement valid from December 10 to April 8 and executed between her and the production house .
According to the company, Shruti had entered into an agreement with them to play the female lead in a bilingual film starring Telugu star Nagarjuna and Tamil actor Karthi in a film directed by Vamsi Paidipalli.
The company alleged that the first schedule of shooting was over when Shruti sent an email stating that she wanted to exit the project. The ‘clash of dates’ reason cited by her was a flimsy excuse, said Picture House Media in a statement, adding that the “unethical and unprofessional act” had caused them financial and reputation loss.
The firm added that it had initiated civil and criminal proceedings against Shruti and police had been asked to probe the matter.
