After a dozen of intense criticisms and controversies over targeting superstars, particularly Mohanlal, Sreenivasan's 'Padmashree Bharat Dr. Sarojkumar' is into newer controversies. The latest came form it's producer Vaishakha Rajan, who has lashed out against the film's director Sajin Raghavan and cameraman S. Kumar for not completing the shooting on time. The producer alleges that the shooting scheduled for a fifty days took more than seventy days to complete, mainly due to the incompetency of the director.
Rajan adds that the movie which was planned for a release for December 2011 was deliberately postponed by the director and the cinematographer, which also added a loss of seventy five lakhs to the production. The reports are that the producer is planning to remove the names of both the director and the cameraman from the new posters of the film.
But the B O reports state that though the initial reports were quite negative, the movie is managing fairly better than the trade predictions in metroes and larger towns, while the centres in smaller towns have already started shifting the movie for new releases.
