It is a tragedy for the comedian. Karunas, one of the leading comedians, bought the distribution rights of Jeeva starrer 'Katrathu Tamizh', by debutant director Ram. It is believed that he took such a decision on the advice of the director himself. Karunas was anyway, much impressed by the outcome of the movie and like everyone in the unit, predicted a hit.
But the film turned out to be a loser despite receiving some positive reviews. Now Karunas, who procured the distribution rights for a sizable amount, now finds himself on the losing end. It is said that he has lost around Rs.75 Lakhs.
Karunas is believed to have demanded Ram to compensate the loss. He has also given him another choice. The comedian with acting skills has asked the director to make a film featuring him in the lead role.
There is no news whether Ram has accepted the demand. If he does, Karunas will join Vadivelu, Vivek and Senthil as comedian-hero artiste.
